CAS-ual Friday's Put A Bling On It

Hey there!!

I made today's card for a friend who saw a similar card i made months ago.This one just like it for a friends wedding with purple and flowers. The card also includes a little bit of bling so it fits great with this weeks CAS-ual Friday's Challenge: Bling!

I started with the sentiment, which is from Papertrey Ink free 4th Anniversary Tags. After printing out the sentiment i cut it out with a circle die and added little glitter dots around the sentiment.

Next i stamped the frame in black ink on the cardbase and again on scrap cardstock. With the scrap piece i cut out the inner frame and used it to mask the cardbase. I stamped a solid flower in purple ink multiple times inside the frame.

As the inked dried i found some purple ribbon that matched (the ribbon looks a little bit bluer in the pic then it really is!) I looped the ribbon on each side of the sentiment, adhered it to the cardbase and notched the edges. Last i added the sentiment circle with pop up dots.

Thanks for stopping by!!
