Pile It On! Challenge - Bling

This week at Pile It On! our challenge is all about:

'Bling'

We are sponsored this week by:



Prize - $6 Gift Voucher to spend at Floppy Latte Digital Designs!
(Or $10 if the winner used a Floppy Latte image!)

I cheated a little bit on my card, and used one of the Lili of the Valley pre-coloured die cut images (from the 'Beary Christmas' set) ...so all I had to do to it was add a little bit of glitter to the snow, and trim it down. I used some very old (and long discontinued) My Mind's Eye papers ('29th Street Market') for the background...I only had scraps left, so created a patchwork effect...distressing the edges, and adding faux stitching. I used Marianne Designs and Cuttlebug dies for the snowflakes, adding some large gems (from Paperchase) to their centres...and a few adhesive pearls in the other corners.


Here are the challenges I've piled on:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Pile It On! Challenge.
