In May, I thought it wold be a neat idea to challenge the CalGals to create something each month for our get-togethers. Since it was my idea, I got to choose the first challenge... and I challenged all of us to make cards with BLING! Shannon and her Mom didn't participate cuz they didn't get around to creating anything, but Tracy, Allison and I did.
This is the card I created for the challenge. The flowers are covered in Iridescent Ice embossing powder and there are bling gems along the words.
I got inspiration from a store-bought card that my mother in law gave me for Mother's Day.
