Little Scrap Pieces Guest Designer




Hi All My Crafty Friends!!

Today, I am so excited to share with you that
I am a guest designer for the Fun Friday Challenge at Little Scrap Pieces.   
I jumped at the chance when Karen asked for
volunteers to do this. 
Thanks for this opportunity, Karen!

Now Karen let her guest designer's pick
their own them and I chose
"USE BLING"!!!
 
I love using bling on my projects
and this one is no exception.
It is jam packed with bling!!
 
I have been wanting to make
a Paris themed card for awhile
and this is what I came up with
 
I used the brand new CTMH Artiste Cricut
cartridge for the roses and the flourishes,
The Eiffel Tower and Cest la Vie,
were cut from Wall Decor and More.

Here is a picture without using the flash.
The beautiful paper is from
DCWV Belle Blvd stack.
It is hard to tell but the
black border at the bottom
is flocked!!

I distressed all the paper
with Tea Dye Distress ink.


Here is a close up of the beautiful flowers.
I sprayed them with some water after
rolling them so I could shape the petals.
I then spritzed them with Diamond Glimmer Mist.
I then added some StarDust
Stickles to the end of the petals.
Did you know if you use StarDust Stickles
it dries clear and you can see the color of
the paper underneath??  It just adds the sparkle!!
I added some pearls to the centers.


 I also added the stickles to the flourishes,
the senmtiment and the flourishes
on the tower!!!

Karen, thank you so much for
choosing me to be a guest designer today!!

Please head on over to Little Scrap Pieces
and join us for the Fun Friday Challenge
and show us some BLING!!!
