Sir stampalotbring on the bling

This is my  DT creation

The team got to play with some great digi images I chose this one called 'floral sillhouette',
and made a fabulous purse box, you can get a template here at Mels blog, thank you for a brilliant
I printed out the template on as heavy card as my printer would take then cut out all the pieces, really easy to do.
The paper is from craftwork cards and is pearlised so it's shiny.
 The silver flap is a piece of glitter card, you know the type that covers you and everything else in glitter.
I thought the image looked a bit like a cameo and would look lovely in an oval. The beauty of digi images you can print them any size. I Cut  2 plain and 1 scallop oval nestabilities, the base one is glitter card. For even more sparkle I added Swarovski Crystals to her hair.

The inside paper is actually paler than in the photo. More glitter card to the handle and peel offs.
 flowers are made with retro flower punches from Bevs tutorial here
gorgeous satin ribbon from Hobby craft and the black from stash.
 So get out your sparkley bits, glitter and bling and let your creations shine.

Thanks for stopping by,
Love cherie   //*.*\\
