Welcome to all my blogging friends! I am now a Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator.

Sue would like you to 'Add some Bling or Glitter' for her theme this week

Good morning to all and today sees the last day of May so I am hoping that June will live up to it's name of 'Flaming June'

Time for another challenge from us, the team, over at CD SUNDAY and this time Sue has asked you to  'Add some Bling or Glitter' in your design.

Thanks for all your entries in our last challenge of 
'Stepping Out' chosen by Jocelyn. It was a pleasure to visit your blogs to see your ideas and pick up new CD's you used.

It is also the end of our Monthly Blog Hop in our tribute to Wendy - Purple Crazy, so many entries it made our choice as a team to pick a winner extremely difficult.

You can see our chosen winner if you pop over to our Challenge Blog - CD SUNDAY

Onto my design for Sue's theme, you can see it below

I chose to use an 8 x 8" White Scalloped Card for my base.

I selected a beautiful background paper from Artylicious CD, now Chocolate Baroque - Peacock Summer Party, to match with my stamped image of a Perfect Peacock
 available from STAMPIN UP

This is a wooden stamp available through Stampin Up Demonstrators only. I recently joined them as a 'Hobby' Demo' and gradually I am building up my stock, you soon get 'hooked'

I stamped using Memento Black Ink onto a card which I had previously die cut using Spellbinders Enchanted Labels 28.

It has been coloured using Spectrum Noir Pencils. 

My 'Bling' is the beautiful Purple Pearls on the feathers and a couple of Purple Gems for the flower centre's plus the 'Sparkly' strip across the Lavender Lace.

A lilac bow complete with a Pearl finishes off my design.

I have a friend in mind to receive this card so I hope she likes it.

Fabulous Christine, a lot has gone into this and the friend who receives it cant fail but to be impressed. Beautiful colouring and all the little pearls look fab on the feathers. xx

Hi Christine. Lovely card - your favourite colours. As for flaming June! It will have to improve rapidly as it is still persisting here quite heavily.

This is gorgeous Christine. I've had my eye on this peacock for a while but have resisted so far. Might have to give in after seeing this.

A lovely stamped image Christine and I love the way you have added all those pearls to the tail feathers. That must have taken some time to do.
