Grungy Monday challenge; a bit of bling for the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge; elegance for the Critter Sketch wedding challenge; and a non-stamped sentiment for the Tuesday Throwdown challenge; and the Ink On My Finger Sunday Challenge which is white. The card base is a piece of silver luster from Paper Temptress. In real life it is gorgeous; scanned it gets a little shadowy. The white lacy border and the stems are from a Cherry Lynn die. Rock candy stickles give the frame a beautiful, subtle sparkle. The stems were treated with bundled sage distress stickles. The flowers are made with three layers of white prima flowers. The top and bottom layer was colored with spun sugar distress ink. The middle layer was colored with victorian velvet distress ink. Each of the petals was tipped using spun sugar distress stickles. All of the distress inks and stickles are from the Tim Holtz/Ranger line of products. The ribbon carries the sentiment "Best Wishes". The bling in the flower centers and bow center are from Prima. Love all the bling and sparkle of this card.
