Cuttlebug Spot D/T Card~Bling!!!

Happy Mon.!

Hi~ya All!

WOW!! It seems like it has been days since we last did a challenge for The Cuttlebug Spot. Although it has only been a couple of weeks, it really does seem longer. I hope everyone had a lovely Easter last week, being we were off for the holiday celebration. Well we are back this week with a challenge and it says BLING!!
Our design this week has to have some bling to it. Me I have been in a card slump it seems like so long, that I'm hoping this weeks challenge will snap me out of it. For my card I chose to do a Thinking of you card, but I wanted to use this S.E.I. paper I had in my stash, it seems like forever. The colors are really very pretty, light grays, medium grey, lime green, and white. It matches the SU Kiwi Kiss colors perfectly, as a matter of fact that is what the ink color, ribbon, and button is. I used my CB Textile folder and embossed the background cardstock, and my Cricut BB cartridge for the bird cut. Yep!, good ole Cricut here too. I cut the bird four times, once on shadow and the cutout using cardstock and chipboard. The label die is also cut twice, one in the cardstock and chipboard. I popped the label die, and bird with dimensionals, after glittering the bird with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. I don't think it show up that well in the photo but it is sparkling. I used my Just Rite stamp for the sentiment, and my petite oval nesties for the cut out. After all of this I still felt it needed a little more bling. so I added some adhesive rhinestone flourishes, and individual rhinestones on the bird, label dies and corners. OK. I didn't overdue it, just wanted to make sure it would catch someones eye. Did it catch yours? Leave me a comment and let me know, and while you are at it, visit The Cuttlebug Spot where you are sure to find some fabulous inspiration! Until next time, have a great start to your week.
