Enjoy simple beauty.

Hi everyone! I've been busy in the scrap room and am pleased to share my Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog DT inspiration project for LTSCB #41 - Bling It On! We're being sponsored this time by the wonderful Scribbles Designs and The Paper Nest Dolls! Come play with us! We want to see bling on your project! The definition of bling is anything flashy, so how about some glitter, gold leafing, gemstones, pearls, or whatever flashy items you have in your stash!

I chose the absolutely adorable Bubble Bath Ellie digi for my 'simple beauty' card. I thought this would be a fabulous card to send to someone who just needs to slow down and enjoy the simple things in life! I used some gorgeous red/pink/purple double-sided paper for the background, matted on dark purple cardstock.

I built up quite a few layers and included some pretty die cuts to showcase that adorable image. I used Glossy Accents on her bubbles. ;)

I added some pretty crocheted cotton lace, gemstones, pearls, a metal corner embellishment, and of course, a big bow!

The front and inside sentiments are from Artistic Outpost's Old Grist Mill stamp set. Love, love, love!

I'd love to enter my card into the following challenges:

  • GKD Pure Luxury White cardstock; dark purple cardstock from stash; Core'dinations pink cardstock
  • K & Co. Que Sera Sera double-sided paper
  • The Paper Nest Dolls Bubble Bath Ellie digital image
  • Copics: E00, Y02/21, BG15, B00, YR15, V17, R00/95
  • Glossy Accents
  • Artistic Outpost Old Grist Mill stamp set
  • Memento Tuxedo Black ink
  • Craftime Enchanted white cotton lace
  • Studios Blackbird ribbon
  • Flonz metal corner
  • Large purple flat-back pearl; small white flat-back pearls
  • Purple gemstones
