Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps June Digi Release Blog Hop

It is time for another Sweet `n Sassy Digi Challenge, but today we are very excited to add something more!  Since it's also time for the June Digi Release, the SNSDC Ladies are bringing you a fun blog hop to introduce all the new digis.  You'll want to stop by each blog to see the beautiful samples made with this month's new releases.  And while you're hopping, be sure to leave a comment on each blog.  Why?  One of the ladies is a mystery blogger and she will be picking a random winner from the comments left on her blog post.

What will the winner receive?  I'm so glad you asked.  The winner will receive the entire June Digi Release!!  The winner will be announced next Friday, June 29th, on the Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge Blog.

This week's challenge is near & dear to most ladies' hearts....Bling!  Just add rhinestones, pearls, jewels, etc. to your project.

I was able to play with the new Dahlia digi this week.  I chose to paper piece the flower in 3 different patterned papers.  The layers were attached to each other with a glue dot and a button finished off the center of the flower.  Before attaching each layer, I burnished the flower petals with a pen top on a mouse pad (high tech aren't I?) to make them curl on the edges.  A little glitter pen provides some extra sparkle to each petal.

For my bling, I added rhinestones and pearls.  While I don't think you can see it in the picture, I added some glitter pen dots to the center of each of the yellow flowers in the background paper.  I also accented the die cut edge with the glitter pen.  This card definitely has some sparkle!!

Cardstock:  Georgia Pacific (white), Bazzill Two Scoops (Key Lime Pie)
Patterned Paper:  Basic Grey (Picadilly)
Stamps:  Sweet 'n Sassy Digis (Dahlia, Encouragement Scripture Set)
Embellishments/Tools:  Spellbinders (Classic Edges 2, Classic Decorative Inserts 5), Sakura Clear Star glitter pen, Studio G rhinestones, Recollections pearl flourish, DMC floss, Morex Corp ribbon, button from stash

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
CPS 270 - Sketch
Papertake Weekly - Bingo (ribbon/diecut/button, ribbon/free/blooms)
Word Art Wednesday #33 - Use Scripture 
Stampin' Sisters in Christ #144 - Create something that reflects you (I like to use Scripture; a little bling but not too much and pearls more than rhinestones; in general I like a feminine look - I enjoy being female)
Divas by Design #40 - Use a diecut

I hope you'll play along with us this week. Just a few things to keep in mind as you play....
