Bejeweled and Bedazzled


Welcome to the Farm Fresh Friday with Glitz and lots of Bling! Today's challenge over at The Greeting Farm is to create a card that draws inspiration from your favorite piece of jewelry, a piece you're dreaming of having or simply something beautiful, glitzy or fabulous that has caught your eye---and to include a picture of that inspiration along with the post of your card.

My favorite piece of jewelry is my wedding ring, but I hope you don't mind, I decided not to use it because I didn't really feel comfortable posting a picture of it. Instead, I was truly inspired by this beautiful necklace I spied on Etsy. I love love love leaves and fronds and small flowers, so this piece really caught my eye.

I decide to use Cheeky Nurse for this card and bring in the flower and frond elements. I also really wanted to draw attention to the hint of red/orange on the necklace, so I used black and white and then added just a little bit of the color. Then I heat embossed the fronds with shimmer and tried my very best to show a few pictures of that sparkle! And last, I really wanted to have this card look aged/distressed and that's why I also stamped Cheeky Nurse on the patterned paper (it's not dirt!). LOL.
And that's my bewjeweled and bedazzled jewelry inspired card!
I hope you will join in on the fun over at the Farm too! Have a great weekend!
