Embellish The Cure with Bling!

This is my very first challenge entry! Weee!!!

Ashley Newell of Embellish Magazine challenges everyone to get crafty with PINK, GREY and FUSCHIA. Oh and don't forget the BLING! Since this is my very first challenge, it was really nice that Ms Ashley gave her readers some direction (cuz I NEEDED it! lol). It was a a whole lot easier when she posted Rasperry Fizz, Sweet Blush and Smokey Shadow as examples of the color challenge hues. All I had to do was go through my PTI file drawer and off to creating I went! Yayy!!


I used Mojo Monday's Sketch 109 for inspiration. I tweaked it a bit, just to challenge myself even more. ;) Used Labels One Nestie with the Rasp Fizz, ran it through the CB with the Textile folder, lightly rubbed white ink over it (to emphasize the embossing), popped the layer up with some dots for dimension and used 3 Prima flowers as the focal image. I didn't have rhinestones (for the bling part of the challenge) so I used clear dew drops as the flower center and alongside the sentiment.

This was so much fun! I hope you likey. :)
