Squigglefly Challenge - Something Shiny

Please note: I have two blog posts today... so be sure to keep scrolling. You'll want to see the Sunshine Monday one, too. It's a cool AGED COPPER card.

Are you ready for a challenge -

This week's challenge is a SHINY one! Yes, that's the special feature. Challenge participants are asked to include something shiny on their cards!

What's shiny on my card? It's the diamonds - ummmmmmmmm, I mean RHINESTONES. A Girl's Best Friend!

For my card I chose to use one of Squigglefly's newest images. I love love LOVE it! This digi set actually includes two dresses and multiple sentiments. It's called Sew Fabulous. Have I mentioned that I love it?

I decided to paper piece my dress rather than color it. I love how elegant it looks. I also cut out one of the tiny flower blossoms from the designer paper and used it as a decoration on the waistband. I added another flower blossom on the sentiment oval.

This is a fun challenge. I hope you'll play along. I'd love to see your shiny creations!

Image and Sentiment: Squigglefly Sew Fabulous
Ink: Copic marker
Cardstock: Stampin' UP! Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, and Regal Rose
Designer Paper: from my scrap file
Embellishments: Kaisercraft Rhinestones
