Wing It, Bling It!



My day had a very early start (for me anyway) with a craft yard sale with 2 stamping friends. Weather was gorgeous...sunny and breezy...and we had a fairly steady stream of buyers all morning. By noon, things had tapered off and we packed up the leftovers...counting our profits so we can turn around and buy more "things" to support our habit - lol! I was also happy to watch Va Tech win against Boston College, so life was even better this afternoon! Saturday is always a big challenge day in the stamping world, so I combined the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge, Crazy 4 Challenges (to use bling), and the Our Daily Bread Shining Light Challenge to use something with wings. As usual, I managed to tangle up the black gemstones, so there was no question where the large butterfly would go - lol! Over the messed up bling spot of course! I finally got to use my new Mega Ovals Nesties and discovered this stamp from Inkadinkadoo's Wedding set fit perfectly. I zigzagged around the 3 strips (I won't bore you with the details of my Janome not working right and having to lug out my big machine!). So, finally the card is completed. Hope your weekend is good and thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment...I love to hear what you think!

I don't think I would even want to try those long designs of pearls! Think there would be more on me than on the card LOL! Lovely use of the sketch and I love that long oval. Great card.
