CONFIRMATION BLING

My niece is making her Confirmation this month, and I was not sure what image to use on the card, I did not have anything religious that would work unless if was Chanukah or Christmas so I went searching at the stamp store and found this stamp. You are not seeing double nor is the photo out of focus, after I stamped the flowers I stamped it again just slightly off from the main image, I really like the way it came out. Since this is for an almost teenage girl ( she will e 13 in December) I had to have pink and bling. I colored in the center of some of the flowers and added pink and clear rhinestones. I could not find the shade of pink or gray that I wanted for the ribbon so I cut a piece of white ribbon and used my copic marker to make it pink. I love doing that. I stamped the Blessed Swirl Sentiment directly on the card, this is an acrylic stamp from Rhonna Ferrar's Autumn Leaves, this was also calling to me for some bling.
And as you can see I had to add some ribbon and bling on the inside. I covered the corners i the pink ribbon and added a rhinestone to the center of one. I stamped a portion of the swirl sentiment and stamped this on the inside of the card. Had to leave some space so I could write something mussy inside.

Deb had a challenge on her blog that ended last week but I could not resist, see this card works either way. Have a great day.

WOW!!!!! I LOVE this card!!! GORGEOUS!!! Love the stamping and I learned my "something new" for today! I would never, ever think about coloring white ribbon with a marker! How fabulous is that! And it doesn't look streaky at all! That's what I would fear. It looks like you purchased pink ribbon. Beautiful, beautiful work!!!
