November Bling Challenge at V's Sweet Ideas

This month at V's Sweet Ideas, our challenge theme is "Bling".  You can interpret that any way you choose.  For me, I chose to make a fun Christmas card with some eye-catching glitter and bling on it.  I started with a scrap piece of ivory card stock and some Christmas patterned paper that I joined together.  I ran a length of Red Metallic Trim that I placed up the side of the two papers, and then place a sweet Christmas sticker border next to that. I also wrapped a nice long length of Baker's Twine around my sticker sentiment, and raised it up with 3-D tape.  Next, I added some gorgeous white and red Sequins here and there, some gold dots from the adorable V's Sweet Dots Glitter Collection and then added a sweet little Chic Journalling Tag to which I added  some word stickers to mention some  family "Christmas favorites".  Finally, I added some extra "bling" to my card by sprinkling the edge of my card with red ultra-fine glitter.
As long as your card/project has some sort of bling or shine to it, you are more than welcome to link it to our November Challenge.  We always LOVE to have new participants play along with us for a chance to win, and we absolutely LOVE seeing your amazing creations.  One lucky person will win a $10 Gift Certificate to spend on anything they choose from V's lovely on-line store.  I encourage you to take a look for yourself to see to see ALL the wonderful products she carries in her amazing Sweet Shoppe. 

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today to take a peek at my inspiration card.  There are several other great inspirational cards for you to see on V's Sweet Shoppe Blog, and we hope that our samples will inspire you to play along in the challenge.  You can learn more about it here:  V's Sweet Shop Blog.
