Today starts a new challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. The new challenge is
We would love to see you create something wonderful with sparkle! There are so many ways you can do this. You might use rhinestones, sequins, glitter, glittered cardstock - whatever you want!

I'm not very happy with how my card turned out. I think I went a little overboard with the rhinestones, LOL! I think I took the title of the challenge (Bling It Up) too literally! I blinged, and then I blinged again and again, LOL. It's all the tree's fault! Here's my "blingy" card:
Did you have to put on your sunglasses due to the glare? LOL My tree needed sparkle. Five rhinestone flowers were not enough, so I just added rhinestones in a pale pink and deep pink. The paper I used is from Maja Design (Sofiero). It is a lovely line of paper. The most important part of my card is my little Tilda! I just love this sweet stamp! It's is Tilda with Two Rosettes from the Special Moments Collection. It is a very versatile stamp! I also used the Magnolia Little Summer Birds stamp from the Summer Breeze Collection. They are the cutest ever! There are two hidden tags that were cut from the Magnolia Doohickey #88 Cloudy Tag. I distressed and inked the edges, added lots of die cuts, some pretty flowers, ribbon, and bling. *blush* The little banner at Tilda's feet has been elevated on pop dots.
If you leave a comment, be kind, LOL. Remember, there is a special somethin', somethin' for one lucky gal!
If you haven't visited the Magnolia-licious store lately, you are missing out on wonderful new arrivals! One example is the Impression Obsession die line. You can find it here. Diana keeps her prices low AND you get store credit! So, you're a winner all the way around! Stop by often and see what is coming in almost every day! There is always something new!
Well, the thunder is overhead. We're under a flash flood warning again. I'm going to sign off as I don't like being on line when Mother Nature is knocking on my front door!
Thank you so much for stopping by! If you leave a comment below, I will pick a name from those who left comments and send you a nice special something that you can use in a die cutting machine - **hint, hint**! I hope you will come back real soon!
