Triple the bling...

I ran out of gems in the right colors to finish this card and ended up having to run out to get the exact same gems.
When you look at my card you can see why I had to run out. :)

I have 3 fantabulous buttons that look like these gems. I had originally planned on them being my ornaments. Unfortunately when I put them on the card they were way too heavy! That's okay because I will definitely use them in the future on separate cards.

This is for the Hero Arts Add On Challenge where you were to create a holiday card and add on an accessory.

I think I have met the accessory requirement. :)

All stamps are Hero Arts. The embossing powder is one of my favorites from Ranger called Queen's Gold. The gems are from Basic Grey Bling It.

I did punch out a circle to provide a template to fill with gems. The gems are a lovely dark blue and lighter teal blue.

I was very excited today to go over to the Hero Arts Blog and see my piecing card with the butterfly was selected as a third place win. The best part is being able to pick out more Hero Arts stamps.

Thanks for stopping by..
