Hi all! For some reason Blogger won't let me comment if the comment box is embedded into your posts so please dont think I am being rude - I honestly cant comment on your wonderful creations which is soo frustrating! I can only comment if the comment box opens a new window. Hopefully all will be fixed soon! Rach :) x

Forever Friends Fortnight Bling Bling

Aaaaah this was scheduled to post this morning but didn't grrrr!

I'm back with another challenge over at Forever Friends Fortnight and this fortnight our challenge is

Bling Bling

Now I have had a word with my camera but it is still not acting nicely in regards to taking a photo of my card and actually showing the shine!!! Grrr lol. I decided that as today also coincides with Halloween (which is also my sister's birthday but that's not relevant lol but is the reason this is sooooo late as I took her to York for the day) I felt the need to make a Halloween card as I'm now too old *sniff sniff* to participate in any Halloween shenanigans and am also faaaaar too busy with the dreaded fourth year dissertation!

I outlined the pumpkins and some of the ornage stripes on the backing papers with a gold Stardust pen and have coloured in the pumpkins eyes with a black Stardust pen.

I also outlined the Forever Friends bear with a gold Stardust pen after decoupaging him so add a bit of interest and sparkle. 

What I used:
  • 5x5 card blank
  • FF image from CD decoupaged
  • Free Halloween digi papers from Shery K
  • Gold and black stardust pens (that dont really show up!!)
  • Square nesties
  • Printed sentiment
  • Purple brads
  • Purple card candy
  • Purple cardstock
We are sponsored by Di's Digi Downloads who have some fab images and our winner gets to choose 5!
So please pop over to the Forever Friend challenge blog to see the other DT creations and remember that you dont need to use a FF bear just an animal and follow the theme.

Happy crafting!
