Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge Week 71~ Bring on the Bling

Hello I hope you had wonderful week. I have been holding on to some very exciting news for more than a month now.  Some of you may have notice a few changes on my blog that give away my news.  I have to say that I have had a hard time not spilling the beans.  I am now on Speedy the Cat's Challenge team.  I am over the moon excited.  I would like to thank Faith and Patty for allowing me this wonderful opportunity.  When I first started stamping about 5 years ago Faith was one of the very first stampers that I noticed and I have followed her every since.  Her cards are always gorgeous and she has been designing stamps now for awhile and I love them.    Sorry for babbling, you are here to see what the challenge is this week.  This week the challenge is to bring on the bling, I love this.  I started with Hello Sunshine and stamped the sun and colored it with copics.  I love a red and yellow color combo.  Next I scored a diamond grid with my scor-buddy.  After matting the top yellow panel and the red bottom panel on black I tied the black gingham ribbon and added a button with a twine bow.  My finally step was to add the little red rhinestones.  I seemed like it may be a bit tedious, but it really wasn't.  We would love for you to play along, so grab some bling and head over to Mark's Finest Papers and enter. If you do enter you will have a chance to win a stamp set, how cool is that.  Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful and safe Labor Day weekend.
