Just Add Ink #38 and CASE Study #9 Challenges......


Edited to add - This card was chosen as a Top 3 Pick at CASE Study :)


This weeks challenge over at Just Add Ink is based around all things feminine, beautiful and proud! Just Add Bling and Pink!!

The Cancer Council's national Pink Ribbon Day is on October 25th. You can visit the Cancer Council's website at http://www.pinkribbonday.com.au/ to see how you can help.

I thought that I would combine it with my first attempt at a CASE Study Challenge #9. The muse for October is Barbara Anders.

The challenge is to CASE this card -



And here's what I came up with -



To get the bling on the brad in the center of my flower, I first covered it in Crystal Effects and then dipped it in my pot of Dazzling Diamonds. I also stamped the En Francais background stamp with versamark and then embossed it with heat and stick powder and then Dazzling Diamonds to give it that glittery/blingy look.

Thanks for visiting, as always I love to read your comments!

Sandra

I love the way you have used a darker colour with the pink to make this card more elegant, and the bling is just beautiful xo
