Sparkle and Bling Fairy

The best part about waking up on Saturday's is knowing there's a new challenge over at One Stop Craft Challenge! Well, and the fact I can sleep in a bit, enjoy a cup of coffee, and hopefully start out stress free. This week the OSCC is sponsored by A Day For Daisies, I just LOVE their whimsical images. The DT really knocked it out of the park with their cards, so I hope you'll pop over to check them out. Then YOU will be inspired to Bling it On with us!

Thanks for looking! Spicey Cat Chick =^..^=
My Creation
Image Detail
The bit of gold ribbon on the bottom of my card was repurposed from a flower arrangement. I've had it in my stash for years!
It didn't photograph well, but I used Spicas all over my image for added shimmer. I paper pieced her wings, headband, and dress with digi papers.
 Triple Bling - Stickles glitter, metallic paper, and rhinestones.
Tip: An easy way to add extra oomph to your creation is to use Stickles over the designs in your patterned paper. Here I doodled over some of the heart edges and swirls.
