Bling It On, Part 2

It sure was fun making this fast and easy card. Inspired by Linda's sweet generosity, and the Sketch at Card Positioning Systems (CPS244), this quick "thank you"note lets my friend know how deeply appreciated she is. She's definitely a "sparkle person", so this card will make her heart happy :-)

Framed with a Martha Stewart Stamp-Around-The-Page border punch, this blingy cardstock by DCWV is embossed with a 5x7 Cuttlebug folder. The blingy flourishes are by Recollections.

Love The Fancy Tags Two Shapeabilities and oval Nestabilities, which were cut with my Spellbinders Grand Calibur. One of my favorite stamp sets by Hero Arts includes this happy stamp (part of a "jewel" trio). Unfortunately the sun wasn't cooperating today. It's overcast, and the photos are not real sparkly to show off the metallic and rhinestones, but I know you can imagine its bling, because your heart is sparkly, too :-)

stamping hugs,

Wow! This is soo pretty Donna! I love the border, and have yet to figure out how to use that one "around the border" punch that I bought. Sigh. I'm hoping your inspiration will kick me in the butt and try again. Love the rhinestone swirl too!

You really are doing spectacular work, girlfriend! I love the shiny paper, embossed so beautifully, and the edge punch. It's such a pleasure visiting your blog these days. I'm getting inspired all over again each time. :-D Hugs.

Absolutely stunning Donna! It is so much fun watching you have so much fun!! I've also got one of those Martha Stewart punches which I haven't "quite" mastered!! LOL

Donna, another beautiful card. I love the colors and the embossing on the shimmery cardstock not to mention the "bling". I like the MS punch too. I agree with Shona you are having fun.

You really do a great job with those MS punches! I still have not been able to master the corner and edge punches together! I can do one or the other but not together! This is such a beautiful card and I also see that you are having fun which is great! I am trying to catch up on my blog readings!
