DYSU Challenge # 12 - Shine On!!

Happy Thursday All,

Another great challenge last week at DYSU. Loads of lovely entries - you guys are great and of course, congrats to all the winners.

This weeks challenge is called "Shine On". We want to see lots of bling on your cards - the shinier the better! So come on girls, get out those sparkles, glitter, rhinestones and show us what you can do.

Our two lovely sponsors this week are:

 Digi Doodle Shop who are giving a $10 gift certificate

and Heather Ellis who is giving 3 images from her Etsy Shop - Digi Stamp Characters

My card this week features a cute little mousey from Heather Ellis Digi Stamp Characters - Mouse in the House collection. I have coloured her with Promakers and sparkled her tutu with Stardust Stickles. The papers used are from Basic Grey - Sugared Attractive and all hase been made into a centre stepper card.

I have tied a ribbon around the centre, added a stickled button, ballet shoes charm and heart. The heart I made myself by cutting out the shape from card, embossing with two coats of UTEE and a final coat of Crystal Sparkle powder. 

To complete the card, I have added more bling in the form of gems - these were clear but I coloured them with a Promarker.  I have also outlined the circle image and papers with stickles.

Can't wait to see what you all come up with this week so don't forget to join in the fun over at DYSU Challenge Blog. While there, take a look at the other DT's cards. Once again they are gorgeous!!

I am going to enter this card into:

Anything Goes Challenge - Make your own embellishments (heart)

Thanks for looking
