Whiff of Joy challenge - use bling!!

Wednesday is here and I got back from my holiday just in time to make my DT card for this week's Whiff of Joy challenge! We had a fantastic time and it was such a break from the mess of the extension! I'll post a few pictures later but for now here is this week's challenge - use bling!! Nice and easy and we all love our bling don't we! I just had to use one of the new fall stamps as they were waiting for me in my post pile when I got home from holiday - what a lovely welcome!

I have used Fall Willow with grapes, I just love that garland tumbling out of her hair - gorgeous! The gorgeous autumnal paper is Cosmo Cricket. I've just noticed a smudgey bit on the photos that isn't on the card, think it might be a bit of suncream on the lense LOL! I have distressed the edges of the image with brushed corduroy distress ink and also stamped parts of the fall corner stamp around the edges.

It seemed such a shame to cover the gorgeous butterflies on the paper so I cut around parts of them so that they overlap the image.

This gorgeous bit of bling on the ribbon I cut off an old swimsuit! LOL

I added lots more bling in the form of gems on the flowers and a couple of pins. I added a sparkly bead to the smallest pin. I hope you can join us this week! Check out the rest of the DT's cards, they're totally stunning! Apologies if I don't get round to visiting this week but with all the dreaded holiday washing and ironing and the extension problems I've come home to I may not get much tme but hopefully will be back to normal soon! x
