Colour Q 140 - Bling Bling

I've managed to make 2 cards for this week's Colour Q challenge.  These are the colours for this week



I usually start these challenges by grabbing out my inkpads and stacking them together on my desk and then search for stamps that will go with them, cause I've found some stamps look better with certain colours.  I ended up having 2 ideas - this is the 2nd idea but the first card I made


This is the 3rd version of this card.  My original idea was to emboss the front using a mask to highlight the centre and then score around that centre panel.  That didn't work out as well as l would have liked so I decided on this popped up panel.  I was really excited as to how this was looking as I was adding all the rhinestones - they actually cover dots that are part of the stamps image - but now that it's finished, I'm not so sure about it.  So I decided to make another, which I will post separately (I'm going to enter both into the challenge)

Hope you're enjoying your weekend, it's a long one here, too bad it is SO cold.

Supplies Used: 
Stamps:  Background Basics - Retro, Birthday Basics (PTI)
Ink:  Distress Embossing (Ranger)
Cardstock:  Island Indigo
Accessories:  Heat Tool, White EP, Coloured Rhinestones (Kaiser)

Oh, but this is sooo pretty. And my daughter in law loves bling, so this is a perfect idea for me to borrow ;-)

Cool! Loving all the bling rhinestones. Cool here too but lovely sunny blue sky at least.
