Anya Ink #2 - Pink and Sparkly

We have such a fun girly challenge this week at Anya Ink - pink and sparkly. Once again I have to lament the fact that photos just don't do glitter justice - but hopefully you can see how much sparkle and bling this gal has. Each of the panels and the white flower is trimmed with some crystal stickles - while Anya's dress and bow, and the white punched lattice, are all smothered in Dazzling Diamonds. On top of that there are the hot pink Kaiser rhinestones for even more sparkle. AND I do believe if you could see me right now I'd be sparkling like crazy too - I always seem to be covered in glitter. I was once asked if I was a Kindergarten teacher because I was always sparkling - LOL.

Once again I've used my Basic Grey paper pads for the DP - these are from the Bittersweet (hearts) and Green at Heart (hot pink behind the doily and the leaves) ranges. I got the square doily from The Stamp Spot and have found that the edges curl up nicely if you stick it down in the central panel.

Now here is my "crunchie" moment - ie blonde on the inside - LOL. I was frustrated that the leaf spray only curled one way and my DP was one sided. I won't tell you how long it took me to think "Doh - cut it upside down". I tell ya I live with waaaayy too many blondes, it's rubbing off - LOL.

So grab your sparkles. glitter and bling and come and join us for some fun! And don't forget to check out the rest of the AMAZING DT inspiration at Anya Ink.

Wow Debbie, she's adorable! I had to click for a close-up to see all her glittery glory. Love the doily, rhinestones, leaves and that drop dead gorgeous flower accent. She's nothing short of perfect:)) It's only fitting that she leaves a little glittery reminder on everything she touches.

I LOVE this girly girl card! And I think you sparkle all the time!

What a great idea to use the lace doily for the mat! You are too clever. Which is one of the reasons I love you!
