Bling, Bling, Bling

When I saw the challenge this week at Stampin' Royalty Challenge #35, I couldn't resist.  The words rhinestones and pearls just called out "use me, use me".
Card base is Soft Suede.  I used the Scallop Trim Border Punch on one edge of the Elegant Soirée designer series paper and layered it on top of the card base.  The Elegant Lines Embossing Folder was used on Baja Breeze card stock.  With my Paper Snips, I trimmed off the part of the card stock without the embossing and adhered that to the dsp.  On a piece of Very Vanilla card stock I stamped the sentiment from the Wedding Sweet stamp set and punched it out with the Modern Label Extra Large Punch.  From a scrap piece of Soft Suede, I punched out another Modern Label, cut off the sides and layered them under the sentiment.  Popped that up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I then added the Basic Rhinestones - bling, bling, bling!  Don't you just love how a couple of the embossing folders are just perfect for adding rhinestones and pearls?  I hope Stampin' Up! keeps them forever.

I hope you are all enjoying the extended weekend.  We're having what I consider ideal weather - 70 degree days and cool nights.  May your days be ideal too.
