A Very **BLING** Card...

How' this for BLING!!!! - Yeah I know - probably a little over the top LOL - But I wanted a very "bling" look for my teenage neice's birthday, and I think I got what I was after! LOL I have taken the photo with the flash to really show off the sparkle but it still didn't show up as much, once it uploaded :-( - but I think you get the picture LOL

A couple of friends came over last night for a cardmaking marathon (wasn't supposed to be but ended up being that LOL) - We each made one each of the four cards above (one made two of the pink one so she had one to keep and one to give away) - The first one is the one I made for Mother's Day, so we started with that (so we had a sample for ourselves to keep). The other three were cased from cards on SCS. The pink "Wild Rose" birthday one was cased from a card by Carole Richardson. Very striking! It also has Dazzling Diamonds in the centre of the raised rose. Carole's had a lot more texture in it to ours. The "Celebrate You" was cased from a card made by cloetzu. Very simple but very effective don't you think and the blue "Thank You" was cased from MicheleTX and her tutorial for Faux Tearing, which I have so wanted to try for ages. I don't know if I had it right though cause the other two with me didn't think much of it! (Ours that is LOL).
