Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger + Card Patterns!

So I was working away at my final cards for Tina Lovell's cute card swap this week when I was blessed with a bit of kismet. The Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger popped into my inbox, bringing this gorgeous charm bracelet photo...that made me want to bling out my entire swap card, which I based on the sketch from Card Patterns Sketch 139. My colors were already similar, I already had a cascade of swirls with a flower or two on it...and I had a whole couple of the new Rhinestone brads that had been ever so quietly calling my name.... So I grabbed my sample card from the wall and started adding the bling. Well, first I grabbed my Liquid Glass and tinted a glob in a small cup with a few drops of Sky Reinker. The brads were calling my name, but once I saw the Trigger I knew that they needed to be the touch of blue in my card. So I painted them with the tinted Liquid Glass to change the color!

Here's my completed card, with rolled 3-D Cricut flowers, fussy cut 3-D layered flowers with the centers popped up on bitty brads, Glitter Glitz, Pearl Opaques, Sparkles, and the now blue hued Rhinestone Brads. I covered the black CS swirl die cut (Cricut AP cartridge) with a couple layers of Bronze Glitter Glitz. Plus I edge distressed the focal point with black ink and Bronze glitz. The papers are from the Roxie packet - I need like a million sheets of that big damask rose on canvas pattern!

It's so sparkly in person! I couldn't capture the full glory of the bling, but I love it almost as much as I love that whole jar of bling buttons you see there. No, I'm not hoarding them, I'm getting ready for my  Stamp A Stack workshop! Still, a little big grin spreads over my face every time I  glimpse the bling button jar as I'm working.

Speaking of Bling, I've got 3 more projects to post tomorrow to wrap up the Black Friday Holiday Hoopla peeks. Glitter is drying, and I'm putting finishing touches on the final project, the cherry on top if you will. Had to take a break tonight to hang with my scrapbook club gals - to scrap or not to scrap...is it even a question? See ya back here soon, and in the meanwhile, take a peek at the fun challenges on Moxie Fab and Card Patterns.
