Blinged Up Oodles of Love

Hi there,

My card today is a submission to a couple of challenges. The main image I used is Lucille that you can find over at Stamping Bella's store, and the Bellarific Friday's challenge this week was to use this wonderful sketch:
Well, I played with the sketch quite a bit :-) The main ideas are still there - rectangle card, main image in the centre, borders and something in the corner :-)

The second challenge I'm entering this card into is Cheery Lynn's Bling It Up! For this card I used Japanese Lace Oval die, Miniature Rose, and the Anastasia Border. I love these dies - they're so versatile and elegant! The Lace Oval is soooooo stunning, I really wanted to show it off :-) Used some ribbon to weave through the tiny openings (oh, the possibilities are endless with ribbons and this die!!! I can see myself playing with them in the nearest future:-)). And check out the Anastasia Border - I used the negative cutout to put around the edges of my DP piece - love the distressed look of it!!! The big flower is handmade (I followed instructions of the wonderful designer Lisa  Nazario-Gregory), and the smaller ones are made based on the instructions of Sandy Hulsart (I wish I could make my roses as stunning as those of Sandy's!!!). Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful Friday!
