Using the Bling

If you missed my little give-away post, go HERE.  For a few days, this blog is all about ACTUALLY USING lots of bling as an intervention for hoarding the stuff.  So here's another card, layered for your viewing pleasure, that uses a lot of bling in blues and greens.

What do you think? Check your hoard stash of stamps and see if you have a sort of funky sentiment you can use for a similar card. Easy, fun, and consumptive of bling!

I hope you all had a lovely weekend and, for those in the United States, please take time to honor the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., on Monday. Let's start with this gem of a quotation from him:

"I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality.... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word."

Unarmed truth and unconditional love. We will get there, people. We will.

stamps: Papertrey Birthday Bash Sentiments
ink: Memento
paper: Papertrey white
accessories: rhinestones, dimensionals


  1. Your card makes me happy just looking at it. Thanks for sharing Dr. King's words. Happy MLK Day!

  2. What a great looking CAS card.

    Oh, my, it is Martin Luther'\ King Jr. day. Forgot all about that which means there will be no mail service

  3. Thank you for the inspiring quote today. It's a great way to start today. I think your card is marvelous as well, I may have to head to my craft room and CASE it. I have colored bling that I very rarely use. I think that custom coloring clear bling is the best way to go. Of course, I accumulated that bling before I figured that out.

  4. cute card. could have sworn there was a link to the gratitude journal on your blog earlier this morning or am I am a snow swoon??

    1. I accidentally posted it to this blog instead of Questioning my Intelligence. It's now over there where it belongs.


Thank you so much for taking time to comment!
