Blingin' 'eck! I can't get a decent photo!

The Allsorts challenge (by Jules) for this week is to bring out our bling, so I sat down and had a go at a monochrome card using my Stampendous Agapanthus stamps. I also used a text stamp from Crafty Individuals. The little swirl around the edges is from the Paper Artsy Sqiggly Ink collection. I mounted both panels on some silver holographic mirri board. I added a punched border (Martha Stewart) and ten stick on gems. I also added 3 large black flat-backed pearls. The greeting is from craftwork cards and also has a pearlised finish.Unfortunately I have not managed to get a decent photo, so it looks very lacking in bling! Maybe I should have added some glitter too! Thanks for looking x

Lovely! Must try some monochrome cards. You can see the bling much better if you open up the big picture.

Absolutely brilliant - love the monochrome - really classy

I know what you mean about trying to get a photo - the light levels are so low on these dull days, and artificial light just doesn't seem to 'do it' does it.

Hi Sally

No glitter required - the bling you have used is clearly visible and beautifully used.

Love your layout.
