 Hello everyone,

A new challenge ready to go over at Little Red Wagon  and Jan is our hostess with the mostess today, this week, and her theme is " BLING ON THE BLING" , gems, glitter, charms..yummy.

Let's go..

This is my new Alstroemeria die and I love it..

I played with my cone flowers and alstroemeria dies using glitter card stock in a wine colour, mirror matt cardstock in wine and had a wonderful time. 

In real life the shine and sparkle is amazing..

The leaf here, I coloured with my markers, but needed more leaves...

Unbelievably lucky, I had this die and it matched, pretty much!

Colouring helped too though, but a great match..

So I made spray on the paper..

Pushed and shoved it around until I was happy..

Managed to slide it across to the card base,

 and found this LOVE die cut
which really needed to belong in this cluster, so on it went..

Nice..not glued yet, getting there..

Gems, oh my, Nuvo Gems, the sparkle on these I could glue them on my fingers and look very glamorous, trouble is they would stick to the hairs on my fingers..ouch.

So, I loaded them onto this card after everything was in it's place and glued..

And here she is in all her glory, I just love this colour..

Do come and joins us HERE

Thank you so much for stopping by..

I'll see you tomorrow or Friday..I'm doing a big canvas mixed media type thing at the moment and it is taking up so much space.

You've certainly done an excellent job of blinging on the bling Chrissy! The shimmer of the cardstock mixed in with the glitter cardstock gives the design different textures and looks stunning! Beautiful as always friend!
