By The Cute and Girly "Bling It on"

I am really late in posting my dt cards that I made for this month's By The Cute and Girly challenge, because I made them thinking that I could borrow my son's camcorder to take pics of them, but that plan went out the window because he couldn't find the usb cable to connect it to my computer!!.... so I had to wait till I bought a new camera before I could take some pics because they wouldn't scan as I put flowers on them.
 Anyway I have a new camera now and managed to get some pics, but they were taken at night, so they are not very good, but at least I can show them now!

The challenge this month is set by our newest DT member Tammy and it's "Bling It On".
We are sponsored this month by our regular monthly sponsors, Simon Says Stamp and Joanna Sheen and our own Geraldine is sponsoring again this month with a gift certifiacate to spend in her etsy store, Little Snippets.
We also have a new digital sponsor this month- My Grafico who are giving away one of their fab digi stamp sets and also 20% off an order in store. My Grafico also gave the design team one of  their digi sets to work with this month. It's a really girly one and was just perfect for the challenge :)
It's called Stick Fairies and the deisgner is Stockberry Studio and I used one of  the fairies on my first card.

As I said the image is from My Grafico and I colured her with Promarker and used loads of Stickles.
The butterfly paper is Papermania, and I used the other side of it for the scalloped border which I done with a Fiskars puch. The other paper is some I pinched from my Daughter Rhianna (I know I am terrible stealing from a 7 year old lol, but it's really pretty!) and is by Best Creation Inc.
Flowers which I also covered with stickles, are all from, except the largest rose which is from Wild Orchid Crafts, and the ribbon/lacey stuff (actually I have no idea what it is lol) is from Hobbycraft, and the bead spray thing is from a local florist warehouse... I must get more of these because I think this is my last one and they are so pretty.

A close up of the image and flowers so you can see the sparkle a bit better :)

I have no idea about the papers on this one, the blue one is from a 12x12 sheet that was already cut into and no name left on it, and the other 3 are from a paper pad that I have had a while but put it away and I can't remember who makes it.... had a quick look but I can't find it...sorry.
The image is from Dewdrop Craftz and is coloured with Promarkers and I smothered it in stickles lol.
Flowers are a mix from my stash.. white roses are fro, pink one I think is a Prima and the other is one I made ages ago from some scraps of digi papers, I think they could be by Summer Driggs and are punched with the SU! 5 petal punch and a Dovecraft punch and I used a tiny spacer in teh centre. I covered the flowers in stickles and added some pearl heart that I got in the works.

You can see the stickles on her a bit better here, but it really sparkles in real life, think I went a bit overboard on the stickles with these 2 cards lol.

I hope you will join in with this months challenge. It's a great chance to get your glitter and other blingy stuff out :) and of course you could win one of the 4 fab prizes!!

I haven't forgotten about my followers giveaway....... things have been a bit hectic here the last few days, but I promise I will announce the winner soon along with a new giveaway! :)

Thanks for stopping by
