The challenge from SUO Challenges today…Bring on the Bling! Like many of you, the last week has been a bit time-pressed and the upcoming week promises more of the same. With my children happily playing with the new Legos (that I spent much of the weekend building), I managed to get this card done. Now, technically the challenge wanted us to put on the bling with our New Year’s card. My first thought, though, was that I need to keep working toward my stamping new year’s resolution. Yes, I am committing myself to actually SENDING cards….on time. Oh, I know that is just crazy talk but I really want to make a go of it! *smile* So here is my not-so-New Year’s card complete with bling!
Yes, those cool shimmery flower centers are my In-Color Glimmer Brads! I was lucky enough to get these at the Stampin’ Up Regionals I attended in early October and they were demanding some attention. These are the Peach Parfait brads and they sort of have a coppery feel to them. Love them! I put on my Early Espresso Satin Ribbon to add another layer of shine to the card. It was great to pull out the Vintage Vogue set and to use decidedly un-holiday colors (although I did use a piece of Deck the Halls DSP)! The sketch is courtesy of the Operators over at Stampin’ 411, another fantastic layout to work with!
I will be back on Friday for the Stampin’ Addicts Occasions Mini Blog Hop. I can promise you won’t want to miss all the exciting projects sure to be on this hop! Until then, I hope you have a wonderful week and are enjoying time with family and friends!
