Try It Out Tuesday #15 - Fairy Dust

Where is all the time going? I feel like time is just whirling past me at warp speed. Can you believe it is already time for another Try It out Tuesday? This week we are being challenged to "BLING IT ON"!!! Use as much bling as you can without being tacky (of course). So what was my idea of Bling?

Swarovsky Crystals, Glitter, Rhinestones, shimmery ribbon and did I mention GLITTER?? Who does not love all things glittery? I tried to capture a few photos to really capture how stunning this very simple, very elegant and very sparkley this card truly is. Click on the photos to get a better view.

I started off with a plain black cardstock. I used the Willow Stamp by Fairie Songs Art Stamps and pressed her into a glue pad and sprinkled a very fine white glitter over the stamped image. I did the same for the Itty Bitty Lockhart Mushrooms. The Crystals started off as an anklet!!! I pulled these crystals off and threaded them onto a piece of embroidery floss, tied off both ends and tied it into my ribbon. The ribbon is white organza and has a very nice shimmer. Last I simply glued 3 flat back Swarovski Crystals in the top corner to balance out my image....

This may very well be the quickest card I have ever created. What do you think? Do you have what it takes to "Bling it on"? Head over to the Follow Your Heart blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has to dazzle you with.
................Supplies I used..................
Stamps: Fairie Songs Art Stamps (Willow), Lockhart ( Mushrooms)
Paper: Stampin Up (basic black)
Misc: Glue pad (Martha Stewart), Stampin Up (glitter), SCADC (swarovski flat back crystals), ribbon, swarovski crystals
