Bling it on! for One Stop

The weekend is here again - how do those weeks go past so quickly? Hope you're all enjoying your well earned rest if you work, and hope you're enjoying time with your loved ones (who work) if you don't.

Today, the lovely Paula set the challenge over at One Stop Craft Challenge and her theme is:


oooooh we all love bling don't we?

This week I've made a card using decoupage - just for a change. Well, you know me, I like to 'ring the changes'. Unfortunately I forgot that the photos I took of the card last weekend really don't show the layers (sorry).

I nearly cried when I cut into the toppers - but I kept reminding myself that it is called a decoupage sheet. The trouble is the images are so beautiful. I added a couple of bling swirls, bling earrings and a bling gems on the headdress and the bow.
