If you've been here more than a couple times you have most likely noticed that I'm a no-frills card maker. A flower here or a button there, a bit of jute or baker's twine and I'm good to go. So when I heard that using bling was the challenge this week at the Lily Pad I had just a moment of panic. But then, they don't call them challenges for nothing. This challenge is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp. You can find all the stamps and supplies I used on my card at this wonderful one-stop online shop.
To get my card started I rummaged through my bins of hoarded supplies and came across some Hero Arts Snowflake Gems which gave me the creative spark I needed. Some great Lawn Fawn stamps, a bit of paper by Echo Park, assorted inks and miscellaneous silver gems and I was happy with this retro 60s inspired bling-y card.
The ornaments were silver embossed then Soft Pool Shadow ink and Fired Brick Distress ink were applied directly from the ink pad to the paper. I used a silver PITT Artist pen from Faber-Castell to fill in the tops of the ornaments.
You won't want to miss the blinged out goodness from the rest of the Design Team at Lily Pad Cards, those girls really know how to use bling!

I will worship at Your temple with deepest awe."
