shield your eyes

Okay, seriously...just what was I thinking? Is this card super loud or what? LOL! Don't you think that this flamboyant bird deserves something bright and out there though?

Today I got an e-mail from Mandy from limeLIGHT Papercrafts! She told me that I could give away a package of Silver Kaisercraft Rhinestones! With that information I decided I should probably make a card that has some of those super fun rhinestones on it...so, tahdah! This fun card is made with the Unity Stamp set called Hey Chick, some Urban Prairie paper from Basic Grey, and then of course the fun Kaisercraft Rhinestones! (could you please ignore the one stinkin' rhinestone that moved before I could get the picture...thank you much!)

While you are over at limeLIGHT checking out the fun stuff I linked you to you should check out the sale that is being run right now, yep...a sale! Between now and March 1 you can get FREE paper! For every three individual sheets of cardstock you purchase, you get to choose one more for free! For every three individual sheets of patterned paper you purchase, you get to choose one more for free! Just let them know what you'd like for free in the comments section of your order! Whew! That is a lot of free stuff for you!

Wanna know how to win the Rhinestones? Well, what I want you to do is go to limeLIGHT and tell me at least three of the wonderful paper companies that limeLIGHT carries. Just list them in the comments section and you'll be all set to go! You have until Friday night (5 p.m. Pacific) to go check out limeLIGHT and come back here to post. Only one comment per person and please leave me a way to get a hold of you if you win! I'll announce the winner on Saturday!

Alright...see you tomorrow! I am going to try a new workout today and I have this feeling I will be very sore tomorrow...wish me luck!

I don't think it looks loud. I think it looks rich. Very pretty! Great take on the Mojo sketch, too!

Ceal said...

But I love it!

Maria Gurnsey said...

I LOVE the bold colors, that paper is gorgeous! Fabulous job with the mojo sketch :)

Missy said...

Very good job with the mix. I am not good with mixing patterns but have been trying to get better at it.
My word, LimeLIGHT and their paper. I will be honest and say I haven't used any of the paper, excepth some basic grey. I like basic grey a lot but haven't had much to play with. I have heard of Crate paper and their images look precious and I would love to see some more TaDa Creative paper.
