I bought this rhinestone pin at a yard sale on Saturday for $2. There is a little stone missing, but I thought it was pretty (prettier than this photo!) and fun & funky. (When I was younger, I would NEVER even look at anything like this!!) I thought, gee, it would be fun to make a card like this--lots of bling & sparkle! Although this is NOT the card I really had in mind, it is pretty and simple and was easy to do....something I need right now!
I used the flower from Simply Said and stamped it in Bashful Blue, Regal Rose & So Saffron Craft Ink, then heat embossed it with Iridescent Ice EP. I stamped the sentiment from Holiday Blitz in Certainly Celery, cut & embossed it with a square Nestability and cut a scallop in CC also. I used my new Sugarcoated Brads from Doodlebug for the centers. It really is more sparkly in real life! The panel is mounted on a Bashful Blue card.
I still want to try to make a really glitzy card with the colors from the pin....I think I will "need" to get some colored glitter!!! Thanks for looking!
Oh, and this sort of fits with Beate's Be Inspired Challenge today, too! You can see it here.
