Flowers & Rhinestones...

Hello there crafty peeps, it’s another Twisted Thursday Anything Goes Challenge over at the Outlawz!

Thanks to all of you who joined us last week for our
“Be an Angel” twist. We had some very lovely cards submitted during that particular challenge, and I really must mention that my fellow DT members rocked the challenge as well. Their cards not only were inspiration but simply put…works of art!!!

This week our twist is an easy peasey one…

“Flowers and Rhinestones”

Here is my card…

I bought some Bugaboo images recently, and learned that if you sign up to receive their newsletter they will provide you with a monthly freebie. This was the September freebie and I think it’s gorgeous and very appropriate for this challenge.

It didn’t require a lot of Copic colouring this time so I spent most of my time on the layout instead.
I used my swirl Cuttlebug embossing folder to create the background mattes and two different sized Spellbinder circle dies for the actual image.

 I mounted the smaller circle on top of the larger circle, and then used various embellishments; on the flowers I used MS Onyx glitter; diamond stickles here and there, clear mini round gems to define the smaller floating bubbles and then finally some rhinestones. The sentiment is from SU. 

I am looking forward to seeing your creations, so get yourselves into that crafty spirit and I'll see you over at the Outlawz.

Thanks for stopping by :)S
