OLW96/LIM76 - 3 Blingy Birthday


This week's One Layer Wednesday challenge is to make a birthday card with bling. I went ultra CAS with this card - Stampin' Up sentiment (B is for...) and flower (Little Pieces) stamped 3 times. The bling is flatback Swarovski crystals. They cost a little more than the plastic ones, but the sparkle you get from them is amazing!

This card is also for Less-Is-More's challenge to use 3 of something.

Today's the last day to play along with CASology's First challenge - Sun. The winner and honourable mentions will be posted on Monday and then Tuesday, it's a whole new challenge! It's been so amazing to see everyone's creativity (especially all you UK people who seem to be only dreaming of the sun this summer!).
