Wish Big with Want 2 Scrap bling!

Hey everyone! I would love to share another CAS card I created especially for Want 2 Scrap! (I sure have been on a CAS kick lately, haven't I??) I recently found, on fellow DT member Dana's blog, a gorgeous flower she had created and I just had to try my hand at one as well! Now, I didn't download the Kalleigh Ratzlaff cut file, but I DO have an awesome die that has been neglected that I thought would work perfect! I used the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die, and it DID work beautifully! Oh, just as an fyi, I followed a tutorial that I saw HERE.

I just used some retired Soft Sky (Stampin' Up!) cardstock to create my flower and spritzed with a bit of Blue Skies Glimmer Mist and added a bit of Tea Dye distress ink to the edges.

And to dress up my card and really make some sparkle, I added the gorgeous Swirls in Silver Rhinestones, which laid itself out perfectly on my card. :) Doesn't the bling really pack a pretty punch??! Oh! And I also used a brand new Basic Grey/Sizzix Christmas embossing folder that I found on my latest venture to Joann.

Definitely go and check out all the bling that Want 2 Scrap carries...you simply can not beat the price point AND selection!

Have a WONDERFUL day and thanks so much for visiting!
