Sunday Card Challenge

Hi Everyone - hope you enjoyed that chunky embellishment challenge from last week - and how about Nic's cool altered book? So much eye candy at The Studio over the past week!
This week we've got a card challenge for you - use something shiny on a card. Let's see how our design team interpreted this one - plus we are also joined by the fab Lisa this week, too!

To add something shiny to this card for a bridal shower, I machine sewed a silver border on my clouds and used silver metallic embroidery floss to hand-stitch silver French knot raindrops


Ive used a metal accent to bring the shining embellishment requested by the challenge. I loved how the metal contrasted with the papers and add an extra edge to the card.

I found these little wings in a craft store when I was on holidays recently...yep, always on the lookout for crafty bits to feed my addiction :). They are iridescent and are just the sweetest way to jazz up a card or LO.


I used some rhinestones and bright embossing powder for clothes! 
Finally I was able to use this very blingy heart that I've been saving for the right moment : )

Thanks for joining us, Lisa - now we hope you will, too. Link up your shiny creations in our sidebar!
