Life Is Better When It Sparkles

This a quick card made for my the Stampavie Design Team. The challenge this week on Cute Card Thursday is "bit o' bling", I thought Lily just looks soo cute standing at the beach and looking out for some treasures to find in the sand :-). I do not think i used a bit lol i used A LOT of bling :-) It was tempting to make a vintage card with the bling swirls i have.. but this time i wanted to make something more simple and modern. Kind of nice for a change.


Stamp: Rachelle Anne Miller Designs "Lily - A Day At The Beach" by Stampavie Discover Sarah Kay, Rachelle Anne Miller, LeLo Designs and more.
Sentiment: Verve Stamps:
Starlight Starbright Remixed
Embellishments: Mother of pearl fish embellishment recieved from Heidi over on Papirverden . for Christmas :-) All gems, ribbon found at Michaels
Tools: Stampin up "small oval"
Paper/CS: Citrus, Stampin up (Black, White and textured Celery Green) card size is 5.5 x 5.5 inches

This super cute card was made by Tricia... she won one of the Magnolia Easter blogcandy i gave away.. can you believe it? She sent this lovely "Thank you note" :-) what a wonderful surpirse in my mailbox. Thank you so much :-) xxx

Scrappymax said...

Lovely card Claudia, I love the colours and just the right amount of bling I would say.
Can I ask, how do you put a photo then text then another photo. Everytime I try to do this it puts all the photos together and not in between the text. Hope this makes sense.
PS I love the card that Tricia sent and what a lovely surprise.
