It Don't Mean a Thing if it Ain't Got That Bling

I love the Clean & Simple style of cardmaking that has come into such favor lately, and I've always been a fan of the asymmetrical look. So when I was looking through the CAS gallery on SCS today, sketch CAS13 really grabbed me.

I've been wanting to get more use out of the gorgeous Wisteria line of papers that I got from Kate at i {heart} papers, and I've had this purple and sage color scheme in my head for a couple of weeks now. And so....

And of course, we had to have some bling! I used some of the awesome Zva Creative rhinestones that Kate carries. The cool thing about these is that even though they come in pretty, pre-designed shapes, you can cut them apart and use them however you like. I cut one of the swirly shapes into a few pieces for this. I find that using my paper piercing tool to move and place the adhesive strips of stones is very helpful.

What I used:
Stamps: All Occasions Messages
Ink: SU Elegant Eggplant
Paper: PTI White, Basic Grey Wisteria
Other: Zva Creative bling, circle punch, MS butterfly punch

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

I love my poker tool of death for bling too! And glue dots! And piercing holes in my fingers.
