Bling Challenge

My demostrators group decided to use BLING as our challenge for this week. There are plenty of blingin' products to choose from in our catalog including Iridescent Ice embossing powder, metallic cardstock , foiled patterned paper, flat-backed pearls and rhinestone brads. I decided to use the Rhinestone Brads because I've had them since I became a demonstrator and haven't ever used them. They come in a pack of 84, with 28 each of three different sizes, so you will find the perfect one for whatever you are working on. I chose clear, but they also have four combo packs that offer a great assortment of colors in round or square. I also used the Lattice Die on these cards to create two different effects. On the second card down, I used the "insides" of the lattice (the football shape you'd normally discard) to create the layers of my flower. I ended up having so much fun I created two cards. I can't decide which I like better...what do you think?
