Always Dress For Excess

It's time to post a DT inspiration project for this week's Dutch Dare Card Challenge DDCC #179 - Bling It On, sponsored by Di's Digi Downloads! Come play with us! We were not given any digis to play with so that means we were free to use whatever we want. I chose Krista Smith's adorable Saturated Canary digi image "Violet A Ragamuffin." What a fun image this is, and I had a great time creating this sweet card done primarily in purple, green, pink and yellow. Bling, to me, is shimmery, shiny and flashy, so I used some glitter cardstock, mirror cardstock, pearl flourish and large gemstones. I sprayed the sentiment oval with a shimmery Perfect Pearls Mist, and also used a Sakura Stardust pen on the flower in her hair and her skirt but the camera didn't pick this up too well.

I'd like to enter "Always Dress For Excess" into the following challenges:

  • Gina K Designs Pure Luxury white cardstock; green corrugated cardstock; pink floral mirror cardstock
