Try It Out Tuesday #15 - Hey Girlfriend

Hi everyone and Happy Tuesday :) Today is Tuesday so it's another Try It Out Tuesday Challenge over at Susana's, of Susana's Custom Art and Card Design, store blog, Follow Your Heart. Our wonderful DT leader, Suzanne, challenged us this week to add as much glitter and bling as we could to our card. I love glitter and bling so this was a super fun challenge for me :)

Here's a picture of my card without the flash. It's a bit difficult to see the shimmer and bling so here are two more pictures with the flash on that really show the shimmer and shine:

For my main image, I decided to use this fun and sassy Rubber Romance image, Three Girlfriends. I inked the image with Memento Black Ink, stamped it onto PTI cardstock, and colored it with copics. I added Ruby Red Liquid Pearls to the lips of two of the ladies for lipstick, White Opal Liquid Pearls to the outfits of the lady on the far left and the far right, Shimmerz to all handbags, and a Kaisercraft Soft Pink Rhinestone to the necklace on the lady in the middle. These ladies are stylin' :) I next stamped the sentiment, from Hanna Stamps, onto the image panel.

Next, I created my card base, which measures 5 1/2 by 5 1/2, out of SU's Regal Rose. I layered Basic Black on top of that followed by Elegant Eggplant, followed by my design paper from Basic Grey. I used my ticket corner punch on my image panel, adhered it to my SU cardstock and to the card base with dimensionals, and added Pearls to the corners. I added a separate panel and used my new Fiskars Diamond border punch along the bottom. I then added a purple ribbon and bow and a Heart Charm to the bottom of the card. For a finishing touch, I added Primas.

I'd love to hear what you think of my card. Thank you so much for stopping by. Don't forget to stop by Susana's Store Blog, Follow Your Heart to see what the other amazing DT members have created. I'll see you back here tomorrow with another project. Hope you all have a wonderful day :)

Big Hugs, Christine
