A Good Day To Sparkle

Hello friends!
Today is a new challenge theme at
Double D Challenges
and being hosted by Team Darlene.
The theme is a super easy one
'Bling It Up'.
There is a fabulous mood board below to inspire you!

There are all kinds of ways to use 'bling'...
I chose gems as I have had this Want 2 Scrap 'Nestabling' forever.
It matches the SB circle a perfect time to use it,
though there are 4 more in the package lol.

The elephant stamp is one I bought at Michael's last month.
I have been trying not to buy those as it seems I purchase them,
bring them home and never use them.
But I have a soft spot for little 'ellies'.

I paper pieced her umbrella, colored her with Copics,
added glitter pens here and there but you can't see that but IRL.
The sentiment and sparkle die cut are from Essentials by Ellen.
The sparkle die cut I applied Nuvo Deluxe adhesive and SNS Bubblegum glitter.
I actually purchased 2 sets of these and a few challenges back
one set was our DD prize giveaway.
The pink doily die cut is from CLD and the EB folder is from SU.

Make sure and pop on over to the Double D challenge blog
and show us your bling....
there is a fun prize to be won and the Design Team
has outdone themselves once again as always!!

Entering the following challenges:
2 Crafty Critters Crazies .... ATG with a critter (m)
The Cafters Cafe .... All Creatures Great and Small (m)

What an adorable way to use your bling! I really, really love the sentiment with the "sparkle" die. Really. I probably need that sparkle die. And the ellie... when you've got a thing for ellies I don't know how you could possibly resist this one. I have quite a few rhinestone flourishes that could stand to be used up, including some large ovals. Honestly, I need to make a point. Super cute, Diane!
