Catch The Bug Tuesday Mini Challenge–Bling!

This is the second mini challenges with Bugaboo Stamps to celebrate their 1st birthday.  The theme is bling, and we were given this cute little “Clown” image to play with.

So, I decided to keep it simple, and let the image take center stage.  I used vellum to make a sleeve for the card, then I stamped and embossed it with silver embossing powder to make it sparkly.  To finish it off I wrapped it with purple ribbon tied with a bow.  I used the Sakura puff pens to add dimension on the flowers, which unfortunately you can’t see in the pictures.  To give it more bling I added purple gems in the corners.

Well, there you have it, hope you will come back tomorrow to see the Wednesday mini challenge with Bugaboo Stamps.
