A Bit of Bling

As promised, here is the birthday card I've sent to my aunt.  This was one of the last cards I made at craft class before we moved.
Sorry to say the photograph doesn't do enough justice to the image, which is beautifully shiny, without being too much.  The stencil is Sweet Poppy by The Craft Station Ltd.  I am pleased with it because we used Dreamweaver paste.  The last time I used it, well over a year ago, I was absolutely hopeless with it and made a real mess.  I do think there is a skill in spreading the paste on properly.  We took the stencil off and added Glamour Dust, one of my favourite things (considering I don't really do glitter). 
The lattice down the left hand side was cut with a die which I think is from We R Memory Keepers (hoping Jo will correct me if I'm wrong!) and is very delicate.  I actually used spray adhesive to mount it. 
The St Luke's Charity Card Challenge wants to see cards with bling, so I'm happily entering this over there today.  Check it out, it's a great blog for a very good cause.
Thanks for looking in today, I hope the weather isn't too bad where you are, it's absolutely pouring here.  I'm sure that's reason enough to stay indoors and do some crafting.  Pop back soon for my latest creation!
