Bling it On at Tuesday Throwdown!

Hello friends!
Back with you today for another fun new challenge at

Tuesday Throwdown

For this new challenge, we would like to see you..."Bling it On!"
So go ahead and pile on that bling and show us what you got!  We can't wait to see what you come up with for the challenge!  I do love me some bling and it's perfect for Christmas time!

Here's the card that I made for this challenge:
This is the perfect type of image to add some "bling"-age to! LOL!
I've used this Special Chrismas Tree image by Robyn's Fetish who happens to be our generous sponsor for this challenge round.  So be sure to play along with us for your chance to win a prize from them!  The sentiment came from a greeting I had in my stash.  I die cut the panel out with my Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle die.

I have colored in the main tree base, bucket base and the ribbons around the candles with my Copic markers.  I've also taken my metallic gel pens and colored in parts of the ornaments, stars and beads.  I then took some glitter and added it to the star tree topper and light from the candles.  I also used some chalk to make the soft glow around them as well.  I finished off my "bling" with some Stickles glitter glue and liquid pearls for accents on the tree.

And if THAT wasn't enough "bling" for ya, I've attached the main panel onto a blue colored glittered card stock piece!  That was attached to a white card base.
I will say that this tree looks SO much prettier in person because you can really appreciate all of the shimmer and sparkle on the design.

Here is a closer look at the "bling" on the tree...
Here, you can perhaps see everything that I've added to the tree.  The only thing that is hard to see how pretty and shimmery it is, is the ornaments that I've colored with my metallic gel pens.  It reminds me of those shinny metal ornaments.

Please be sure to hop on over to the challenge blog and check out what my fellow teammates have made with some blingy projects!  I'm sure you will be inspired to play along with us!

Thanks so much for dropping in today!  See you back again soon!
