Easily Distracted!

This brilliant sentiment is a freebie from Create with TLC and as soon as I saw it I knew it was meant for me!
I have been dying to make a card with it since I downloaded it, but have only just had the opportunity. Of course it had to be totally blingtastic, which left me with a few problems as I have so much bling in my collection I wasn't sure what to use and searching through everything took me an age, because I was constantly being distracted by something sparkly LOL! In the end I decided to decorate around the sentiment with designs made wholly from self adhesive gems, so out came my Bazzill Jewel templates and away I went.

Here is what I ended up with.

Sentiment - Create with TLC freebie
Sparkly silver paper - Hobbycraft
Templates - Bazzill Jewel Templates
Blue, green, pink, black, yellow, crystal and the most beautiful tiny Aurora Borealis gems all from MeiFlower.

No matter how hard I tried I just couldn't capture the amazing sparkliness of the gems with the camera, but in real life, the sparkle is just gorgeous.

I will probably be filling my basket with lots more bling at the craft show today, I just can't resist!
I'll be back tomorrow with a couple of Clipart Fairy cards, one of which my hubby says I need to make about a hundred of, to keep me going all year, mmm wonder what it could be?1
see you then,
Colette xx

Wow - just a sec whilst I put my sunglasses on - very sprarkly! I know the Bazzill Jewel Templates make it a little easier, but it still takes a lot of patience to stick gems. Worth it though - very pretty!
Can't wait to see what Eric means about the Clipart Fairy card!?!
