Flourishes Bring Back Beautiful (BBB18)!

Happy New Year!  Hope you are ready to Bring Back Beauty (BBB18)  with some Bling!  This month's challenge is all about the beauty of bling!    Can I get a WooHoo!?!  LOL!  I love some bling! 

For my card I am using Flourishes Irish Blessing stamp set.  I  stamped the bunch of shamrocks with Flourishes Classic Ivory card stock.  I colored with Flourishes Copic Color Collection.  I cut out and added an assortment of hues of green glitters to the little leaves.  I finished off the greens with a few touches of clear for added shine.  And, if that was not enough, I had to add a few black glitter cardstock  Spellbinder die cuts in the corners.  I finished with a few touches of black gems to the corners and to the bouquet of shamrock handle.  

Check out what the rest of the team created with the 
Beauty of Bling theme!


As always thanks so much for stopping by!
