Paper Crafting Journey's new challenge is all about Bling!

Hi Crafty friends,

I love Christmas and everything about it, it always feels like such a magical time even if it is in the middle of Summer here in Australia. I was born in England and spent my childhood growing up with cold Christmases so it never feels exactly the same when we're trying to eat a roast turkey in 40 degree heat lol!

Anyway, onto the challenge at Paper Crafting Journey this fortnight and the theme is Bling! Too easy right? The sponsor and the image I've used is from Digistamps 4 Joy. I really enjoyed using this unique image, her dress is actually coloured with a clear sparkling gel pen but very difficult to see in the photo, it looks a beautiful champagne colour so I'm happy I didn't do my usual copic colouring. I used fine gold glitter on her dress and star chain and some white glitter on the top of the card. The sentiment is a rub-on and I thought it went well with the little scene I've created. I added Flourish with a Bling pearls to the Christmas tree and a metal star.

Special hugs this week to all the lovely ladies from Word Art Wednesdays for leaving such uplifting and thoughtful comments.
