Jewel Colors Plus Gold

 I made this card for the Gingersnap Creations jewel colors plus gold challenge.  This beautiful image Vintage Dress is a freebie from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff, stop by her blog The Frugal Crafter to see what she has this week, and take a look at the rest of the team's blogs and their recent projects too!  I cased the idea to use tulle for the skirt from my DT sister Margie who made an awesome note card using black tulle.  For the bodice, I used Art Glitter Glue on the whole thing, placed the beautiful sapphire blue rhinestones from Pizzaz Aplenty down then filled in the background glue with some embossing glitter and heat set it.  The blue seed beads are on a string which made them much easier to glue into the swirl.  I used a piece of gold braid for the waist, pulling it through to the back side of the card.  The tag is Spellbinders Fancy Tags, and I used Tim Holtz weathered wood to darken the already distressed edges.  Stop by Lindsay's blog The Frugal Crafter Friday for a team wrap up.  Are you interested in winning a set of Pro Markers?  I don't have any myself, so I entered the give away that Lindsay is having on her blog.  Just stop by this post to enter yourself.
Also, visit her today to grab your freebie that she always so generously provides.
Thanks for looking.  ~Diane
