The Kraft Journal Challenge #7

     Bling is the word for this week's challenge at The Kraft Journal.  For my card I've used an image from A Day for Daisies and colored it with my Copic markers.  She just made me think "bling" when I saw her.  Bet she's got a drawer full of costume jewelry in that little dressing table.  :-) 
     The image is layered on Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock and Buff Ivory Cover Weight cardstock with a little Bazzill and Anna Griffin paper thrown in the mix.  The bling buckle was cut from Kraft Outlet Pre-cut Chipboard, covered in gold embossing powder and blinged up with some pink acrylic rhinestones.  It's "tied" onto the card with some 7 Gypsies Victoria Seam Binding.
     So break out all your fun little bling embellishments and some kraft cardstock or Kraft Outlet goodies and whip up a blingy card for this week's challenge at The Kraft Journal.  See ya there!
