Bling It On!



Remember when shiny silver Christmas trees were so chic and modern? Now they are so chic and retro!  I embossed the tree from Holiday Happiness in silver and added bling to the branches since Pals Paper Arts challenged us to "Bring on the Bling!"  Then I found a lovely angel hiding in the set Friends Never Fade.  Some more silver embossing and that angel was ready to be the "star"!

Oh, Linda, I absolutely adore your card--everything about it! The bling is perfect, too! Stunning!

Oh, I thought the angel was a flower that you cleverly used to top the tree! I love how the tree branches are "dripping" bling!! Yes, I do remember those silver trees. Underneath them was usually a rotating light with different colors! Fun memory, Linda!

Such a beautiful card, Linda. I love it and the memories of my grandmas tree. Oh did she love her silver tree.

Love the bling on your aluminum tree! (I hated them back then...now how I wished I had one! lol) So creative and unique! The pop of red is perfect!

Linda this card is Bling FABULOUS. Touch of red really sets off the silver bling, and How stinkin' clever you are to find an angel in that stamp!Amazing. I too remember the silver trees...we were still chopping down our own and my dad would have no part of it. But the memories of thoses days still "sparkle" in my head.

Linda, this is absolutely stunning. I love the angel, - just genius. The thin red ribbon gives it the perfect pop just like a touch of red lipstick. Gorgeous!

Mike said...

No way! Unbelievable! This is so beautiful, and that angel tops it off! (No pun intended - well, maybe just a little)

Okay, I now am convinced that you need to rename your blog "Clever Stamper". It's amazing what you can "see" in stamps. Gorgeous card!

This card is just so pretty! Normally I try to copy the cards I really love but I don't think I could do this one justice at all. Lovely!
