Bling it on!

Good Morning friends
Hope your having a fabulous Saturday, fingers crossed it will me a sunny day too!
I have made a Christmas card for our Challenge at Totally Gorjuss this week as the challenge theme is Bling it on! our sponsor is
I have used a Penny Black stamp called Fantasy stamped
I stamped the image in gold ink and also embossed it with enchanted gold embossing powder, I added some glamour dust, and the flower is also inked with gold ink, I have dry embossed the background in just lines and also used some of the gold metal sheet and also stitched it into place, I have also sewn the image in place, added some gems and ruffled and sewn the sparkly edged ribbon in place too!
I also added a gem brad to the flower.
Here are a few challenges I am playing along with:
Delightful Challenges – Stitching – Real

  6. Gorgeous card Samantha. I love the embossing and the bling! I didn't realise at first that it was a Christmas card, but by changing the poinsettia it would work for any occasion, perhaps even a sympathy card which are really hard to get right. This seems to be so versatile. Fab card.

  7. This is one stunning christmas card. It is so versatile as Annette says, it can be used for other occations too. Love the embossing, bling and poinsetta too. Have a lovely evening. Hugs Bettina xx
