Whimsical Designs "Bling" Challenge

Everyone loves a little sparkle now and then, and that's what we're asking you to do for this week's challenge over at Whimsical Designs, create a project using "bling".

We have a fabulous design team who have some wonderful creations to share with you and inspire you, so please stop by the blog and leave them a little love.

Our sponsor this week is Paper Nest Dolls!!! They have some darling digital images you'll just fall in love with. The prize you can win is 3 Copic markers of your choice and, better yet, if you use a Paper's Nest Dolls image in your creation you can win 5 Copic markers!!!!!!

For my card I used Lightening Bug Ellie and the sentiment You Light Up My Life, both from paper Nest Dolls, along with one of Stephanie's stamps "Love Bug" from her stamp set With Love.
I printed out my digital image 3 times - on the star background paper, on white blending paper and on the flower patterned paper so that I could fussy cut out her dress. After I finished coloring her and attaching her dress I fussy cut her out and used pop dots to attach her to the background paper.

I added my bling by using yellow Stickles on all the fireflies and attaching rhinestones to the centers of the stars.

Supplies used: card stock - white; patterned papers Pixie from Magic Happens by Kaiser Craft and Fiction 6X6 paper pack by Basic Grey; digital image and sentiment from Paper Nest Dolls; Copic markers; stamps - With Love set by Whimsical Designs; ink - Tuxedo Black by Memento; Curved Rectangles Nestabilities by Spellbinders; yellow Stickles; rhinestones - Kaiser Craft and Kandi Kane; Pop Dots.
