Hello friends! This is my second post today. I just couldn't help myself...lol. 

I whipped up this little ditty for the Make it Monday challenge over on Nichole Heady's blog.

This week, we were to use a strip of vellum and to add a sentiment to that strip. My first thought was diamonds, for some reason, and this is what I made:

I apologize, but I could NOT get a picture of this card where the bling really shined. This was as close as I could get. :)

I think this card will be fabulous for Ava on her birthday. She likes dark colors (ok, black!), and also the bling. It should be fun! I'm also going to put our tickets to New York City (shh....it's a secret!) in there, so it needed to be a little blinged out, right? lol

Stamps: Big Birthday Wishes (papertrey)
Card Stock: Smokey Shadow, vellum (papertrey); DCWV striped paper (Hobby Lobby)
Ink: Versamark and black ep (SU)
Extras: Bling (want2scrap); Row of bling (Joann's); Numbers die (papertrey)
