A 3rd post!! I'm on a roll

I told you I might post another cad tonight! I went and had a look at the challenges and decided I would combine two of my favourites. Sketch Saturday and Whiff Of Joy. The girls over at WOJ challenge want to see bling this week and I think I just about managed that, what do you think?

I am so annoyed with this photo, my gems look flat and horrible here but IRL they are sparkly and pretty.
I love all the bling flourishes and other shapes that I have seen people use a lot of lately and I wanted to use something like that for this card but I don't have any so I stupidly decided I would make my own pattern with gems.( Note to self, don't ever have this idea again!) These gems aren't even the sticky back kind either so I had to stick them all on one by one with glue in the shape I wanted. I looked at the flourish I used on the card I did earlier for the basic shape then just started sticking and I have to admit it did take a while to get them all to stay stuck in the right place lol.
The WOJ images were another RAK and I just cut them both out and stuck my girl onto the chair. Papers are DCWV, flowers are Primas and everything else is from my stash.
Oh and the strips of paper was a piece of heat embossed card that a friend sent me about a year ago, it looks so mcuh better in real life.You can't really see here but the embossing is sparkly and really stands out.
I think I will try to get another photo of this one in the morning because I am really not happy with it.
Anyway I hope you are all having a great day/evening and thank you so much for stopping by :)

Hugs Lora x

this is beautiful! and i can just imagine how hard you worked on those gems! however, i have found that the self-stick kind unwind and are very hard to handle. but that's just me.

super beauty here!
