Bring on the Bling!

This is my card for Cinema Saturday this week, the movie being Bride & Prejudice. I hadn't seen this movie before but had wanted to because I expected it to be fun - I wasn't wrong there! Our requirement this week was to bling up our cards - not hard to do! In conjunction with some Bali Breeze paper I stamped the (retiring cry) Paisley on Orchid Opulence cardstock - had to get some purple in! Once all my layers were stuck down I went over certain parts with my 2-way glue pen and then dumped lots of Dazzling Diamonds all over it. To create the center piece I took a piece of chipboard, covered it in VersaMark then heat embossed gold embossing powder over top. I repeated this another 2 or 3 times (can't remember!) then stamped the flower stamp into the warm embossing powder. This left an impression of the flower that I then went over with the Tombow glue and covered that in Dazzling Diamonds glitter. Below you get a better idea of just how much glitter is on this card.
Brooke also wanted to know what our favourite dance scene was from the movie. I would have to say mine is the first, I still crack up laughing at Sayid shaking his goove thang! It also brings back some memories of uni life... though nothing was that elaborate!
