Bling it Up!

Hello, happy Monday to you :) Hope you had a wonderful weekend and your Monday starts the week well. We had a very wet, cold and windy weekend, time to light the stoves again!

This week over at Through the Purple Haze Challenges, the challenge is 'Bling it Up' sponsored by My Mums Craft Shop
This is the card I made for the challenge -



I am not really a girl of bling, but I managed to root out a bit!! I cut some different size strips of 'baby patterned paper' and stuck it down to the card. I left a gap large enough to fit the circle.



I added a cute little bib to the circle, stamped 'welcome' and added a bit of bling. I did some faux stitches around the edge of the circle.

 I cut out the baby girls name with some adhesive felt, and stuck it down to a pink strip of card. I then added two flower embellishments for a bit more bling. Behind this pink strip of card, I border punched some vellum paper. I think this gives such a beautiful discreet affect, without it being too obvious. 
I stuck the circle die cut down with some foam pads, just to give some depth.

Why not enter the challenge this week? Root out some bling from your stash, and give it a go! A great prize up for grabs :)

Thanks for stopping by, I hope to enter this card into the following challenges.
