Bluejean & Bling!

Hi all- hope you had a fantastic weekend! I just got home from my weekend retreat, where I got a few challenges accomplished as well as my TCP swap!! AND I watched a few good movies: 1) Slumdog Millionaire (I know, I know....but I had still not seen it..WOW!!! and 2) Black Swan- holy...deep and dark but surprisingly good! Natalie Portman was amazing! No wonder she won the oscar (and golden globe I heard). The food was delish and hospitality unbeatable! Thanks Lynne!

One of the challenges that I wasn`t going to enter and decided to last minute is MFT`s guest DT of the month contest....the theme this month is denim and diamonds...bluejean and bling.....rhinestone cowboy;) Whatever you want to call it! I didn`t take a ton of MFT stamps with me, but I did take a was a choice between 2 Jolinnes or Fred Bear! hehe- Jolinne won by a landslide!
I also used MFT`s weekly sketch (WSC#17) for this one:

Here is my card:

I used a fair bit of dark blue denim as trim (MFT ric rac die and frayed scrap), matting, and the flower accent (MFT rolled rose die-namic), as well as in the inside, with a nestie die and the stars (MFT stacking stars die-namic). The bling is an assortment of i-rock crystals (swirl), SU clear rhinestone brad (rose center), Taylor`s tiny twinkles (star border (MFT) centers, Jolinne`s necklace, hair flower, purse flower, and shoe buckles). I like this card- it looks so much better IRL- the picture doesn`t do the card justice! And I think it looks really western with the colours and the denim and gingham red ribbon....too bad jolinne doesn`t have a cowboy hat on!! Maybe we need a cowgirl jolinne some day!

That`s it for me tonight! I have a few more sweet cards that are already made up, so I should have steady posts for the rest of the week:)
