Well, those who know me know I adore flowers, and that would be a challenge for me for sure!
So I figured that if I can't use flowers, then bling is the next best thing!
I chose these rather large rhinestones. But when I had the card all finished, it suddenly dawned on me that maybe the glitter is considered an "embellishment"? I hope not. I can't imagine that embossing powder would be either, and I tend to think of them as both more like kind of "basic" elements- along with things like ink, etc. Hopefully the judges will agree ;-)
My little silver love charm was simply added on using a piece of thread tied around the ribbon. I was not sure how that would work, but you can't even see it at all. I think I may be adding charms to my cards more often. I usually just use findings and attach with large pop dot glue dots. But I am liking the dangling effect that charms give.
Anyway, there you have it: the first time I have ever made a card to submit to a challenge! I love ODBD stamps (which you probably have figured out by now, lol!) and am excited at having a chance to win a gift certificate to their store.
Why don't you try this challenge, too? But hurry- cards have to be entered by August 5th!
Thanks so much for stopping by. I'd love to hear what you think.
Have a wonderful day!
