Happy Sunday Morning to Everyone!
Bring on the Bling, AND Simon Say's Stamp - Sparkle and Shine, I took it to heart and added bling to almost all the cards I made. It really does jazz things up! And I decided to try and incorporate "blingy-ness" in ways other than purely gems, and on this card, I decided to heat emboss the image and sentiment in silver. I think silver is such a nice formal color and I like how it turned out on the gray paper. Romantic and sophisticated all in one. Of course I added some real bling with my gem, and I think the simplicity of the card really works. I also love doing tone on tone cards and I don't have too many chances to use my fancy 3 in 1 corner punch from fiskars. I then popped up the tone on tone panel so you could see the shadows through the cute corners! I love it! This is a perfect way to use Paper Sundaes Pop It Up challenge! So this card is using many new techniques and styles that I haven't used recently, and I am loving it! Simple and muted but elegant and sweet at the same time.
Hope you like it! Have a happy Sunday!!
