Try It Out Tuesday #15 - Make A Wish!

Suzanne Dean has challenged Susana's Custom Art & Card Design's DT once again. This week, she challenged us to create a card and add as much bling as we could bring ourselves to use without making it too tacky. Uhhhh - is there such a things as "too tacky"? Not as far as I'm concerned!! If you know me, you know that I believe that I was a "ho" in a previous life because I LOVES ME SOME BLING!! LOL So this challenge was easy peasy for me!! I used a new Eat Cake Graphics image that I got from Susana's store called Poppy. Isn't she adorable? To bling her out, I've added Kaisercraft Rhinestones, Doodlebug Glitter on her wings, and shimmery pastel chalks. I used my new Spellbinder's Labels Three Nestabilities, and I used my Quickie Glue Pen to add some Dazzling Diamonds around the outside embossed edge. I think if you click on the picture, you can get a closer look at all the dazzling glitteriness (yep, that's a word!). You might need shades it's so blingy!! LOL

Oh, and by the way, I used another A-MAZING product that I recently got from Susana's store that I just wanted to shout from the roof tops about how great it is! With all this sparkly goodness, you can imagine all the flippin' glitter that found its way all over my stampin' studio (code for my kitchen - hehehe). Well, I pulled out my recently purchased Scor-Pal Glitter Clean Up Cloth and it sucked up all that glittery goodness in a flash!! No joke - not a speck of glitter was left on my countertop. You've GOT to get one of these babies, I tell ya!

Thanks, Suzanne, for another fun Try It Out Tuesday challenge. I don't know how she does it every week, but Suzanne comes up with some doozies!!
