The Shabby Tea Room - "Get Your Bling On"

I'm SO thrilled to be this week's guest designer for The Shabby Tea Room and I've been looking forward to this for a LONG time! Not only am I the guest this week, but I'm also giving away this week's prize - a FREE watermark!  Woohoo!  You can catch all the entry details HERE.

I used a TON of glitter on my card today - the tea pot is stamped in Pretty In Pink craft ink and then sprinkled with Heat & Stick powder and sprinkled again with Cyclamen glitter - oooh, gorgeous!  I wish there was a magical way to photograph all this glorious glitter, because my photo doesn't do the sparkle justice.  I also stamped the background paper and added more Starfire glitter to it (and yet again, the sparkle has been lost in translation).  I also added a little more bling with some Tiny Twinkles along the scallop border.

Thanks for stopping by today!

recipe -
stamps: cup of life (verve stamps), turning a new leaf (papertrey ink)
paper: chocolate chip, very vanilla cardstock (SU), afternoon tea dsp (SU), some patterned paper I can't remember the name of - help!
