Bling It On!!!

Here is a card I made today while taking time out from work type stuff.
The image is from Cora at Paper Flowers who collects and scans all sorts of wonderful images and offers them at her other blog Clearly Vintage as a weekly Saturday Image Bonus.
Cora always asks for people to let her see any projects produced with her images and this is the first I have done, although I have been collecting the images for some time.
A huge thank you Cora for all the beautiful things you share.....your own work as well as the images.

For the card I have printed the image onto a linen effect cardstock and then extended the design to one side where I have hand drawn the lettering, cut around it and glittered it using Quickie Glue and very fine glitter.
The card blank is covered with paper from the Basic Grey Urban Couture range.
The the picture area of the image has been rounded out and attached with silicone glue while the letter area has been glued flat with PVA. You can see this better if you click on the image for a larger view.
Chipboard circles have been covered with the same paper and decorated with a gem and I used a pattern from a Christmas card I made to do the gem lines at the bottom.
Hope you like it.

I don't know how much I will be blogging over the next few weeks as I am going to be out of the house more days now until Deb is recovered from her operation. I will be having Wednesday off every week but that may be spent doing prep for workshops if I don't get time to do it at the shop. I will post as and when I can but apologies in advance if I don't manage every day.

It's been a bit warm for me today so I am off for a nice cool bath in a minute when I have done my sandwiches for work.
Thanks for dropping by.
