Bling It Up

We have a new challenge at Crafty Cardmakers this week and the theme is Bling It Up.  I have used this cute image from My Bestie's that I had in my stash of digital stamps and thought it was perfect for this bling it up challenge.  

I coloured my image with Copics, Wink of Stella and a Gell Roll pen. I love my colour combo of oranges, violet and yellow.  I used a pretty die frame to frame the image and another flower die for the sidebar. Once I had may card completed I blinged it up with some gems and completed the card with some pretty yellow roses. 

Hope you will join in the bling it up challenge. Remember to pop over to the challenge blog to see the inspiring creating of the design team.
