Say it in Style @ Pile It On GDT

Today to share with you I have another Guest Design Team posting with 

This week the girls would love for you to 
#15 - Say It In Style!
and 'bling' up your sentiment! 

Now who doesn't love BLING!  so there really is no excuse for not playing along this week!


Today I have used and blinged up 2 sentiments - One on the front, and I also carried the theme though to the message inside.  Both sentiments are FREEBIES - the one on the front is Wishing You Everything Beautiful  from Jess at Playing with Paper, and the 2nd on the inside is a butterfly quote from ET at VIBGYOR Krafts.  Both of these girls have an amazing talent and their site is full of lots more freebies so please take the time and have a peak around their blog. 

For this card I have done some pleating and made a fab flower that I added a beaded charm to, made some inches that I distressed and used some faux buttons I made that I had left over from a previous project.  As there was not much to 'Bling' on the front sentiment I printed it on metallic white shimmer paper and I added the metal butterfly and then added on the sparkly swirl tail coming out of the sentiment.  The butterfly theme has been continued through the card with the DP and the verse inside as well.

I really love how well this card came together and it would be another that I would love to keep if I had not made it for someone special in mind.  I really hope that you like is as well and find some inspiration in it and come and play along with us this week at Pile It On.  We would love to see you!
