One of the things I love about challenges is that it gets me to use things I rarely do. I had these gemstones forever... they just sat in my drawer. I bought them on a whim one day thinking how pretty they were. But I don't naturally reach for things like that to put on my cards. But, I think I need to start. They really add a lot to a layout, and I love the sparkly enhancement. Adds that little x-tra something ;)
I combined todays challenge with a SCS challenge which was a new technique for me, faux denim. So I really went out on a limb with this card! Such fun!!!
Thank you for visiting! Happy summer =D


  1. This is such a great card Lisa! I love the bling on the "U" and the faux denim is cool! I'll have to figure out how to do that. The stitching is a great addition, as well as the lovely yellow ribbon. That must be the new Crushed Curry ribbon. I love the way you did the flower in a distressed look too. All around AWESOME job!

  2. This is ADORABLE Lisa! LOVE it! The chipboard letter is awesome w/ the bling down the side and I love your flower w/ the bling in the middle! Beautiful layout and use of colors, too!

  3. This is GORGEOUS Lisa!!! Loving those colors and the bling on the letter - genius!! :D

  4. Lisa,

    You Did a wonderful job on the Bling Challenge too and I really really like this card love the blues and yellows and this card has so many great elements to it!!!

    Way to go on this!!!
