DCM – Bejewelled Bliss

You know, I can’t believe that yet another week has slipped by and it dare time again but it is, so I guess I’d better show you the card I’ve made for the Daring Cardmakers challenge.

It’s Lythan testing our creative skills this week with

Bejewelled Bliss
In honour of my addiction to the Bejewelled Blitz gameI would like to see cards with lots of bling and sparkle!

I thought it was about time I was brave and had a go at using the 6 x 6 basic Grey Marrakech pad that I brought a while back. Don’t get me wrong, I love the patterns but it’s the colours that scare the hell out of me……..bright to say the least.

Anyway, I braved it out and came up with this little gem…..scuse the pun!
My 'sparkle' is in the way of tiny gems and twinkling H2o's
