Too Many Blings?

Here's the WMS sketch for this week :

And here's my card:

When I made this card, I must have been on bling overload!!{giggles} I so wanted to play along with the WMS sketch and inspiration was a little lacking. I think I started off ok, till I saw the i-rock crystals and swarovski crystals on my desk... big Oops. It was so fun with the i-rock tool - and I had to stop myself from adding more blings. (hmm.. do you think the flower centres need some??) 

I stamped the floral image on white cardstock with Versamark, and heat embossed it (I used white embossing powder). Then I sponged various colours of Distress Inks on it.  To attach the twine, I first positioned the paper flowers where I wanted it, then pieced through the flower centre & cardstock.  I used a fine floss needle to thread the twine across the card and then through the flowers and tied it with a bow. Then I added the swarovski crystals at the end of the twine bow.  

Tell me what you think...please!  And, if you like the card, I'll be happy to mail it to you - just be sure to provide your email address when you comment, so I can contact you.  If, however, there's more than one of you, I'd have to pick one ;)

Enjoy today!

Cool!!! I love the vibrant colors!! And don't think it's too much bling here, but the hearts of the flowers are okay, but the bling you added is perfect! Great, great colors!!! Looks awesome!!
