Jugs of Bling

Why, oh WHY, do weekends fly by so fast?!

Here is another card I managed to squeeze out of the Bubble today! I was inspired to give the challenge at JUGS a try. It is harder than you'd think to stamp something and NOT color it in. I do love a good challenge! While I did stick to the 'rule' of just line stamping with no coloring in...I did kind of go overboard with bling.

Bloomin' Bling
~Base card pink card stock
~Design paper card stock
~Stamped flowers in pink ink and Stampin' Up's Almost Amethyst and Cool Caribbean
~Yellow flower 'centers' punched using Stampin' Up! Spring Bouquet Flower punch and dotted with metallic Sharpie - with bling brads
~ Bling added to flourishes which were stamped with SU! Gumball Green
~Edges of white card stock - dry embossed and smudged with pink ink
