Blingity Bling Blang Blung

First of all, thank you for all your comments on my post about inspiration challenges and Heather's OLW132. I sincerely hope those of you who are intimidated by inspiration challenges will overcome that worry because, seriously, they are the most. fun. ever.

Second, we all need more bling in our lives.



I tried this as a two-layer white-on-white, but it looked odd. So I tried a hot pink mat, but I didn't have a good shade to match this one, which is purple-y pink. So then I thought, why not get wild and crazy and use THREE layers of white.

That walk on the wild side caused me to throw all caution to the wind and get blingity, so I blinged (or blang) to my heart's content.

Hmmm. Methinks someone took a cliche pill today.

My thesis advisor would be having a cow.

Bless his little heart. *giggle*

Stamp happy this weekend!

  3. The three white layers give this card an upscale stationery look. I like it very much. Bling on, baby! I'm sure you don't watch The Bachelor, but this card has more sparkle than Tierra. (Google it.)

  15. OK...I need to make a sign with your sentence "We all need a little more bling." That makes me happy just reading that line because it's me all the way! Thank you for making me smile with your writing/posts and card paper talents. I hope you know how much inspiration you provide!

  17. You said a mouthful! ;-) I've seen several cards with 3 layers of white. I don't know why it's not used more; I certainly think it's effective but, then, what do I know? Well, I know what I like, and I certainly like this.
