Papertake Weekly - Putting on the Glitz

Before I tell you all about this week's Papertake Weekly Challenge, I would just like to say thank you for all your kind words in my previous post. I am pleased to say that Mollie went on her school trip and returned safely. I don't think it was a patch on the Brownie Camps she has been on but it was "an experience" I'm just so pleased she is now back home with us.

So onto this week and our theme is "Putting On The Glitz"

It's time to get out the glitter, sparkles, gems etc and just generally bling up your work.

We are being sponsored by Digital Delights this week !

The gorgeous image is of course by Lili of the Valley and I just thought it fitted this theme perfectly. I quite often find my girls doing this the downside being that my makeup is usually all over the place ! I have coloured her with Copics and ProMarkers and a Spica pen too for sparkle but it doesn't show in the photo. The mirror is covered with glossy accents.

The gorgeous papers are the new ones by My Minds Eye and these ones are called "Gertie" and are from the Stella Rose collection. I have also used some BasicGrey Manilla too.

The seam binding is from my local market and I coloured it myself using watermelon alcohol ink.

The sentiment is a Melissa Frances transfer. Simon Says Stamp sell sheets of these and I just love them all ! You can find them here.

The bling is from my stash and I made a homemade swirl !

The rest of the DT's cards and projects are just gorgeous. Hop over and take a look !

We hope you can join us in our challenge this week and look forward to seeing your bling !

Take care and see you back here again tomorrow !

I am also entering my card for the Lili of the Valley Challenge as Dawny has the most gorgeous sketch over there that I followed.
