Free up a Freebie


I just want to say that I appreciate every one of you that follows my blog to see what I am up to and I am always excited to see a new follower. A while back I noticed a new follower, Stef whom I had seen at other sites and when I checked out her blog I saw that she had challenges, her site is Glitterbabe's Challenges . She is into sparkly and glitter as you can probably tell by the name. As many of you already know, I am not so much a bling girl, but I thought I would give this week's challenge a try. Stef has several free images and she wanted them to have some love. We are to use a freebie and make it sparkle. I made a 5 x 5 card which I don't do very often and using her image sparkle flower (which I used 3 times) and her birdhouse image. My inks are Memento angel pink, bamboo leaves and Versamagic pretty petunia. I sponged these colors around the flowers and then cut out the birdhouse with my nesties peony die. I sponged these same colors alternately around that also. My sparkle came from the Sakura clear star pen, which doesn't show very well in my upright photo, so I took a close up, and the heart bling that I had in my stash.
So all of my friends that like bling, and I know several of you do....stop by and check this challenge out...free images and glitter. Ahh!
