Bring on the bling

Hello lovely people,

I can't believe it has been 4 weeks since we set you the KISS challenge at In The Pink and I know it's one you all struggle with as we had some very loose interpretations of the theme - lol!
So, we thought we'd go for something a little bit easier this time and that is...
Bling it up!
I have to confess that my card isn't quite as blingy as it was in my head when I planned it but I do rather like it!

I also have to confess to buying new craft stash, namely this beautiful Tilda stamp.  I have been thinking of trying out a Magnolia for a while and this one fell into my shopping basket whilst buying a stamp for my Mum for her birthday ;-)

For my bling I have used a sprinkling of glamour dust (both on the card and myself!), several pearls and a couple of tiny little gems - can you spot them?!
I curved the sentiment and raised the centre on some foam pads... I think this turned out pretty effective so you might be seeing this again!

Card recipe;
Image: Magnolia - Tilda binding flowers (from Sir Stampalot)
DP: Maja Designs - Sofiero/Vintage Summer Basics
Flowers / pearls / pearl brad / seam binding: from Wild Orchid Crafts
Fancy frame: Spellbinders Nesties - Timeless Rectangles
Leaves: Memory Box die - Lavish Branch
Sentiment: Kaisercraft mini set

Copic colours;
Skin: E0000/000/00/51 &R30/21
Hair: E50/51/53/31/43
Dress: RV000 & R81/83/85
Ribbon: R83/85
Flowers: BV0000/000/00/01/02/04/08

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges;
1.  Wild Orchid Crafts (add a die cut)
2.  Papertake Weekly (make it sparkle)
3.  Inky Chicks (Pretty in Pink)

We know you love the sparkly shiny stuff so no excuses for not entering our challenge :-)  If you need any more inspiration pop over to In The Pink and see what the rest of the DT have created... be prepared to be dazzled!

Before I go I would like to apologise for being a bad blogger as I have not been round to visit you all as much as I would like over the last couple of weeks.  It's been one of these 'life gets in the way' fortnights and I hope things are going to settle down a bit now.

Thanks for visiting,

Kat xx

Such a delicately shaded card Kat, but with such fab sparkle!! Love the pastel papers and of course, your stunning colouring and layout. And yes.... the stitching!! I PROMISE I will try this out soon... I just never seem to get time as I'm always in a rush to finish a card... but hopefully that'll change soon!

Big hugs
