You're The Best Chandelier Card


I had such fun with this card!  

I started off by stamping the paper 4 times with one of the stamps from SP & Company's Scripty Scripts set.  Instead of doing it as a more subtle background I wanted it to be a bright color and really pop so I used Stampin' Up's Pink Passion. I stamped the sentiment "You're the Best" on the bottom using the same ink from the set Ultimate Sentiments I.  

Now that the base layer of stamping was complete I started adding my layers.  I added a strip of patterned paper from Me and My Big Ideas.  It looks like a snow leapord.  I punched it with the EK Success Open Scallop border punch.  I added a hot pink ribbon on top of it.

The last step was adding the chandelier, which was cut from the Home Decor Cricut cartridge and then using my IRock to add a bunch of bling to it.  Most of the card was pretty quick and easy, but it did take me a long time to add all the bling.  I have no used my Irock much yet, so maybe I need more practice.  It took me ea long time to line everything up nicely, but I think it was well worth the effort because the bling really adds a lot to this card.

Wow that is amazing. I love the bling. You did a wonderful job with your IRock. I don't even own one yet. I want to use up what I have and that is a lot first.
Love your card. Thanks for the sweet comment on my card.
