bringing on the bling - C'bug Spot challenge

Bling on cards is a lot of fun! So, when I saw the Cuttlebug Spot challenge for this week was to Bring on the Bling, I had to make a card along those lines.

Here it is....

I used a few different types of "bling". The green is a very pretty shimmery card stock by Prima. Unfortunately, the shimmer didn't show up well up above, so you'll have to take my word for it. The hot fix rhinestones were actually clear and they picked up the green of the card stock in a way that makes them almost look metallic in the photo. The silver border was made using HVAC foil tape (for Heating, Vents, Air Conditioners) that was embossed and cut with a Spellbinders Borderabilities die. I like using HVAC tape because it has a little more heft to it than aluminum foil, so it holds the embossing better, plus it's nicely sticky on the back once you remove the paper backing. The embossed card border was made using one of the Cuttlebug border embossing folders. The stamped images are all by Cloud 9 and stamped using Memento inks. Love using Memento inks on shimmery papers and card stocks because they're translucent and let the shimmer come through.
