FRIENDS (#42 Friendship)

We all like a little "bling", right!?  Well when I saw this challenge at "Stamptacular Sunday Challenge" I immediately thought BLING!  Your design had to be black, white and  silver.  What better way to sparkle it up!  Personally, I love black and white, it can be so dramatic.  I've had this paper for a while and knew it would be perfect for my idea.  The little hanging crystals are trim for around the bottom of a lampshade!  (Good ol' Dollar Store in Phx!)  I used my CB for the scalloped edge circle, a Fiskars edge punch for the bottom trim and then heat embossed the sentiment.  Simple but fancy-schmancy!


  1. You've been busy.. ;D Fabulous cards!! I especially like this one, it's very beautiful and elegant, I love the hanging crystals, FAB detail! =)
