Bling it up!

I'm not realy a "bling " person,
but over at Glitter n sparkle ... that is this weeks challenge -
and I hope I rose to the challenge! x

I got this cute rag doll with a quilt image from QKR Stampede
and immediately saw red gingham paper with it! 
I used kraft card and embossed the edge. 
I used a martha stewart punched lacy border along the bottom...and LOTS of bling! 
(the gems in the senterof the hearts, the dolls dress is coloured with a red glittery pen, 
the white border had a little glittery-blingy border just below the top,
with a teeny bling flower to the left hand side. 
Oh, and there's a little red bling gem on each of the white flower centres.)
I finished off, with a little black faux stitching around the red gingham edge.
Also, 2 Martha Stewart punched butterflies...made with a slightly sparkly card.

 I would like to enter this into the following challenges....

I'm quite pleased with how this one came out...
this was a bit last minute. 
I used a digi paper (which, I hope, resembles bubbles / water)
and this cute image from QKR Stampede.
I handcut the circles - and the matting around took a while!
and free hand cut the little silver bubbles.
The image is coloured with a mix of watercolour pencils and promarkers....
I love using both.
Finally, I added a ribbon along the punched white border.
Again, it took me a while to choose this sentiment...
