Bling It On!!!

This weeks Teddy Bo challenge has to be one of my favourites, the theme is-

Bling It On!

We want to see your sparkliest, blingiest creations, so go wild with the glitter, crazy with the gems, you can never have too much bling!

For this challenge we are being sponsored by the lovely Tracy at

and look at the gorgeous goody bag she's got ready for the winner of the next challenge!!  MMMMMMMMM!!! :oD

The winner also gets 3 Teddy Bo & Co graphics of their choice and the two runners up get to choose one...x

You must use a Teddy Bo and Co image, but once again there are some fabulous new images in the store this week including the one I used on my card.


As soon as I saw this image I knew it was the one for me!

I cut out the shape twice and attached them at the top, scoring the back piece of card so that it opens like a tent card, (no gusset this time as it seemed to stand without splaying) both the back and front are covered  with a Debbi Moore paper. I bought the blue, glittery, self adhesive ribbon yonks ago from a local craft shop and have been dying to use it, and this challenge was perfect.

I added glamour dust to Bea's shoes, the fringing on her sleeve and the scalloped part of her headband, blue glitter to the headband details and a small diamond shaped rhinestone in the centre,  Her necklace is made from Nail Art crystals given to me by a friend, and the polka dot feather at the back of her hat and the blue fluffy one amongst the flowers came from a Primark hair clip. The flowers are from stash and also dusted with glamour dust, and to finish off I used Glossy Accents on the bear's noses, Bo's cufflink and the fasteners on the violin case, (knowing Bo, he probably keeps his butties in there LOL!).

Head over to the Teddy Bo challenge blog and check out my teamies, blinging creations, hopefully there will be lots to inspire you.

I am going to enter my card into the following challenges;
