3 Clover's Thursday Challenge #23-BLING

The challenge this week on 3 Clovers Thursday Challenge is BLING...use anything sparkly, glittery or blingy! I have come to realize I am BLING challenged for sure. My stamping style is fairly CAS (Clean and Simple) so I really had to strain my brain to come up with a "blingy" card. This is the second card I made and my favorite. I will have to post effort #1 a little later in the week. I am still trying to get the correct colors to photograph! (obviously it was not my fave)

I first used my square nesties to cut out both the red and white squares , added the brads and then I had to figure out what to do with the darn things....I tried so many different layouts before I settled on this one. (the card ended up being 5x7) I have to say that I love that SU! DP...the pretty black with the clear embossed cherries and stripes on it...I just wasn't sure how to use it...I finally found a card to add it too!

I did a bonehead stamper trick and glued the middle black piece on and it looked so pretty...until I realized the cherries where hanging upside down...I hate it when I do things like that. Of course I CAREFULLY pulled it apart and righted the wrong. This is good strong paper besided being pretty LOL!
See the pretty embossing on the paper?

Ohh, I can't resist -- I just saw a comment about the "bling cherries" -- is that anything like "bing cherries?"
