More is BETTER! . . .

. . . especially when we're talking about BLING!! That's right . . . and how fortunate that I fully endorse the use of mass quantities of BLING . . . 'cuz that's what we're doing this week at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog!!  No kidding! This week's hostess is the lovely and crazy-talented Kim . . .  and she's chosen the theme . . .

Bling!!

Well, well, well . . . have I mentioned that Bling is my middle name?!! (Not really . . . it's Kay . . . I was just being metaphorical!! hehe!!) Sooooo . . . here's a look at my Bling!!
I've had this adorable Mo Manning image for nearly a year and decided it was time to bring it out for the afternoon!! This image is called "Lemons" and is available HERE in Mo's online store. Here's a close-up . . .
Wanna hear something funny? I started out making this card pretty clean & simple . . . with just a couple of baubles (hey . . . work with me here! That IS clean & simple for me!) . . . but then the card took on a life of its own!! And a bit of a side view . . .
My Card "Recipe" . . .
Bashful Blue & Banana cardstock: Stampin' Up
Digital DPs: "Life's Little Lemons Too" at Nitwits
Front sentiment: Stamping Bella
Deckled oval dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities

Rhinestones, ribbon, & teensy butterfly punch: My stash
Large butterfly punch: Martha Stewart

A peek at the inside . . .

And . . . last but not least . . .
So . . what'cha think, Kim? Blingy enough?! hehe! Okey dokey . . .  now it's your turn . . . but before you get started, please head on over to Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog to check out the fabulous projects created by Tine and the rest of my talented Design Teamies! Then, please join us for this week's challenge. It's easy and super fun. . . just pull out your craft supplies and at least one Mo Manning image and start creating!!

I don' think it has enough bling on it. I knew I should have skyped with you when you were making this card. But the colors are just magnificent. So Springy!!! It must have been one of those rainy days when you were making this BEAUTY. I LOVE IT!!! Even though it can use a little more bling..lol

Hugs
