After a little leave of absence from The Perfect Sentiment's Challenge Blog, I am back. And just in time for a wonderful challenge: Easter Bling!
Here is the card I made in hopes of inspiring you:
The new Spellbinder's cross dies from ABC Toys & Crafts arrived in my mailbox over the weekend and I just couldn't wait to use them, so the timing for this challenge was perfect :-)
The detail in the cross is awesome, and I had a pretty glittered Prima flower for the center.
I chose to use purple (a perfect Easter color) "baby bling" pearls for my challenge "bling". I love the size of these, as they are great to put around the Spellbinders scalloped circles and ovals.
I hope you will join us at The Perfect Sentiment for this fun challenge of using "bling" (pearls or rhinestones) on your card with an Easter sentiment. Our sponsor this week is Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and More and they will be awarding our winner with a prize of five digital images!
And for even more inspiration, please check out all the great cards the design team has for you:
