BLING week on Dare U 2 Digi-Stamp

Hi folks!!
What a fantastic response to our first week on Dare U 2 Digi Stamp. Thank you to everyone who joined in and spread the word. It was great to be able to visit all of your blogs and enjoy your creations. The challenge this week is to use 'Bling' on your projects and of course a digi stamp or download. Want some fabulous inspiration to get your creative juices flowing? Then check out the DU2DS Design team, a real mixed bag this week... something for everyone :o)
My project is a Bind-it-all book that I made for my good friend Christine Dark. It's her Birthday tomorrow....Happy Birthday!!!! I covered the front and back covers with some card that came in a kit from Create and Craft many moons ago. I adhered this with book binding glue to ensure a good bond. I inked around the edges. The glittery pink and black die cut flowers were also from the kit. I curled and inked the edges before adhering to some tulle with dimensional glue gel. The monochrome panel behind Rosabella fairy is from the Die Cuts With A View Glitter Stack and has been cut and embossed with my Nestabilities. Rosabella is one of my own Digi stamps and I have coloured her with distress inks and glitter. The sentiment is a pre made self adhesive word. I thought it was perfect for this weeks challenge. I added some black pink and white ribbons to the wires of the book and finished off the cover by adding flower gems to the flower centres and Rosabella's hair.
I hope you will be able to join us for this weeks challenge.
Ciao for now!
