How About Some Bling?

This week for the Stampin' B's Design Team challenge #119, Pam asked that we 'Go Blingy and Embellie'-use as much bling and/or embellies as you can.  I did my best to please her by using a lot of pearl swirls and some flowers. We hope you'll get out your bling and embellishments and join us this week. Just go to the blog link above and use the inlinkz tool to upload.

My sister gave me this stamp from the $1 bin at Michael's. She gave me  5 of these and they are all butterfly/sentiment stamps. I had not seen these. They were wooden, large, and stamp really well.

I want to enter these challenges:
Craft Room Challenge-Butterflies
Stamps R Us Challenge Blog-Through the Garden Gate Theme
Totally Gorjuss-Summer Time
