Christmas Bling It On

The Pals Paper Arts Challenge 65 is all about bling and more bling while keeping it clean and simple this week.  Here is what I came up with.

I decided to use Brushed Silver card stock for my base.  My last little piece of Shimmery White card stock was embossed using my doctored up Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder.  In the oval area I stamped the image from the Bells and Boughs stamp set with VersaMark ink.  This was heat embossed with Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder using the Heat Tool.  With Garden Green and Real Red markers, I added a little color to the leaves and berries.  Basic Rhinestone Jewels were also added to the image as "glitter berries".  The centers of the embossed flowers were made to stand out with the Real Red marker.  I made a small bow using Real Red 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon.  I punched two small holes with the Crop-a-Dile and fed the tails through to the back.  I then adhered the whole layer to the card front.  I figured I covered the bling thing with not only the jewels but the two different card stocks that have their own little shimmer going on.  Hope you like it.
