Bling It On

I have missed playing the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge for about three weeks and I was definitely experiencing withdrawal symptoms so I just knew I had to play this week.  Their challenge calls for making your own flowers but I decided I should also see if I could find some other challenges to play in and I found a sketch I liked that looked like you could add pearls or gems too so this is based on that sketch (I just flipped the sketch).  Then another challenge calls for beads so I just had to add those too.  Now I am a pretty tailored kind of gal and don't do a lot of bling but this is so over the top, it made me laugh.  The experts say it is good for us to laugh often during a day so I hope this makes you laugh too.

I am entering this in the following challenges:

Charisma Cardz - All About Bling
The Pink Elephant - Sketch
Crafty Ann's - Embossing (Flowers)
Little Red Wagon - Beads
Crazy 4 Challenges - Paper Flowers
Sassy Chery's - Make Your Own Flowers

The image was a generous freebie from Sassy Cheryl to her group on Papercraft Planet.  It has been coloured with a combination of Prismacolor and Koh-I-Noor pencil crayons.  The papers are from Sandylion Sticker Designs and Recollections (Michaels).  The card stock is from my local office supply store, Lasting Impressions and Recollections (Michaels).  Other supplies used:  Chalk (Mungyo), Gems (Michaels), Beads (Michaels), and Swiss Dot Embossing Folder (Cuttlebug).

    The link you left via Mr Linky isn't working (I found you from one of your previous challenge entries) - I thought I'd better let you know in case links you've left at the other challenges have a similar problem.
