Totally Gorjuss Bling it on!

Saturday again!

Well no point in moaning Mr Sandman is not helping slow the time done so I will tell you about our new challenge for you over at Totally Gorjuss

The theme this week is
Bling it on!
We are sponsored by the lovely Heathers Hobbie Haven

For my card I started by measuring where to add the sentiment and then I used one of my New Memory box dies called Piestra Tile, I worked out that by masking my cuttlebug plate so I could line up easily. As the challenge is Bling it on! I added tape behind and glittered in sections then added mini gold gems to add to the pattern.

I decided that I would also emboss some lines to give texture but not colour.
I am really pleased how this one has turned out.

Here are some challenges I am playing along with:
Charisma Cardz - Clean and Simple
Paper Crafting Journey - Add some Bling
Whimsy Inspires - All things sparkly

So I hope you can come and join us at 

My teamies have some AWESOME inspiration for you!
