Don't be blue - bling it up !

Ok so I am here today to share with you my very 1st DT card for stampin for the weekend.

I was super pleased to be invited to join such a talented bunch and I look forward to many happy challenges with both them and you - you will play along too - won't you ?

This fortnights challenge (yes you get 2 whole weeks to get your projects in !!) is hosted by the lovely Jan who is challenging you with a crafty recipe. She wants to see your projects with blue, buttons and bling. The winner will win an fabulous stampin for the weekend candy box !!!!!!!

For my card I used a digi image {agapanthus} and sentiment from the doodle pantry which I layered twice in microsoft word before printing and colouring with my Lyra aquacolors. Wow it is ages since they saw the light of day and I remembered just how much I enjoyed using them.
I must revisit more of my forgotten stash it really is criminal to just let it stagnate in my {dusty !} cupboard !!

I added touches of glitter to the individual blooms which you can see if you click on the picture and see the larger view.
For more bling I added a beautiful pearl swirl - I just adore these things, I wish I could wear them myself on special occasions !

The rest is all from stash - I hope you enjoyed my card and that you will come along and join in with us at stampin for the weekend - I mean what else would you do this weekend !!

Thanks for visiting me today x
((hugs)) Suzie xoxo
