Bring on the bling and winners



It's all about glitter and sparkle at Allsorts challenge is week where the theme is 'Bring on the Bling'.

I'm not really big into bling and the closest I usually get is a few gems down the thorax of a butterfly although I do rather like my Frantage which I guess is blingy in its own way so that's the basis of my card, along with stamp from this weeks sponsor Flonz Craft.

I stamped the vintage birds and embossed with detail clear and place them inside a spellbinder die from the Chateaux Gates set. I randomly added Frantage around the frame and also the background piece which I also stamped with Baroque corners also from our sponsor. The great thing about Frantage is you can't really go wrong with it in fact the more random is the better it looks. The branch is a TH Alterations die as are the pinecones.

And as promised the four people who have won a set of the beaded pins in my post last weekend:





Congratulations to your all, please mail me with your full names and postal addy so I can send you gifts off to you.

Have a lovely weekend everybody.

These are colours that I absolutely delight in & I love the way you placed the birds inside the cage. The bow is a lovely corner frame & beautifully balanced by the Baroque corner stamping.
