Bling Alert!!! (put your shades on!)

Happy Sunday!

How are you all? Are you having a fab weekend making cards/crafty bits. I hope so!

Today's card is for the Corrosive Challenge Blog. The theme was to make something using a flag or something related to your country. Well, I went for a flag. Now this idea SO didn't work out how I planned. It is bling at its best!!!! I really don't like it, but unfortunately didn't have time to make anything else so had to go with it. I am sure to get no comments on this one lol, not nice ones anyway!!

To make the card I printed out a flag and mounted it onto red glitter card. I then embossed a piece of white card through my embossing folder and added the word 'queen' in red. I then threaded a little crown embellishment through some red ribbon and wrapped this around the embossed section. I mounted this onto a piece of blue card. I then cut out a crown and added some gems. Finally I added the words 'for the day' and a silver arrow for even more bling lol. Oh dear!!

I've been really bad at putting my little recipes up for my cards lately, sorry! Here's the one for this card.

Dies: Sizzix 'Easy Peasy' alphabet, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, 'Swiss Dots', Sizzix Dingbats #1, Diva w/crown
Paper: Bazzill cardstock, red and silver glitter card from stash
Accessories: Crown, stick on gems from Mei Flower

Well, I'm shooting off now. Don't forget to hop on over to the Corrosive Challenge Blog for this week's challenge, they have weekly prizes and Janet sets some fab challenges too! I would love to see what you guys come up with for this one. I found it really hard this week
