Sparkle and Bling

Today at The Hybrid Chick, we start a new Card Caravan Challenge.  This challenge is to add some sparkle or bling to your creation.  Easy-peasy!  So come on over and join in!

I made my card using a new digital kit by Etc. by Danyale called My HeART

Isn't it gorgeous????  I designed the card in Photoshop, then printed out the components, cut them, inked and glued them together.  I added the ribbon and gems across the middle.

For the flower, I printed one of the kit papers on both sides of double-sided paper. I cut the petals shapes using the Tim Holtz Tattered Floral die.  I spritzed them with water and scrunched them.  

When I put the petals together to create the flower, I coated a brad with Glossy Accents and sprinkled it with Doodlebug Designs Sugar Coating glitter.

So I've got a little bling and a little sparkle on the card!  Can never have too much sparkle!!
