Bringing out the bling with the Crafty Gals Corner

It's time for another challenge with us at the

This week we are letting our creative juices flow with
Challenge #122 - Bling

The sponsor for this challenge is:

The Paper Shelter
Prize: $15 Gift Certificate


Today I have used the She's Charming digital stamp
from The Paper Shelter, our generous sponsor this week.

I printed the image on a sheet of A5 X-Press It blending card, heat set then coloured with Copic markers.  The image panel is double-matted with pink and maroon cardstock.
The sentiment was created in Adobe Photoshop using two of my favourite fonts (Bookman Oldstyle and Janda Celebration Script), double-matted the same as the image panel and popped in position with foam squares.
I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the mirror, coloured it with Copic markers, added a panel of shimmering silver cardstock then added rhinestones to each of the ornate curves.
A cluster of paper flowers finished off the card, making a visual triangle with the sentiment and mirror.

Quirky Crafts - May Challenge - Going For A Quirky Song
My quirky song is "Absolutely Fabulous" by the Pet Shop Boys, a fun song, perfect for this image and the sentiment of my card.  The words "Absolutely Fabulous" roll of your tonque so smoothly and are such a pleasure to say, in person and on cards too.
I confess, I enjoyed watching the quirky adventures of Edina
with her quirky family and even more quirky friend Patsy :)
