Challenge #14 - Pink and BLING

Hi Pinkies..

Today's challenge at In The Pink is all about the BLING!!  Lots and lots of the shiney, sparkly stuff...  diamantes, glitter.... anything you like, as long as it glistens!  In fact, here is the definition of 'bling' as found in the Urban Dictionary:

Bling (or bling-bling) is a slang term popularized in hip hop culture, referring to flashy, ostentatious or elaborate jewellery and ornamented accessories that are carried, worn or installed..

That gives you plenty of scope, doesn't it??  If you need any further inspiration...  here are what we've come up with... (for more details click on the link above the cards)

And now... I'd like to introduce Wendy (maybe known better as Papersniffer) , who is the new Guest Designer at In The Pink for the next two challenges.  Wendy's entries have been stunning, and her 'bling' card is no exception:

Here's a few words from Wendy..

My name is Wendy and I'm a married stay at home mum of one living in Inverness in the Highlands of Scotland.  I've been crafting in some form or another all of my life but over the years I've become addicted to papercraft.  I'm always on the look out for something new to try, but it's stamping and using my Promarkers that I come back to time and time again, I guess I'm just a big kid who still loves to colour in!

And now onto some sad  news...  I'm sorry to have to announce that Sylvia has decided to step down from her position at In The Pink..  and I'd like to take this opportunity to thank her for all her fabulous contributions in getting In The Pink up and running...  her support during it's initial stages, and her wonderful DT cards!   I'd also like to extend to her my good wishes for the future.

So.... for the time being, it'll just be me and the Guest Designers!!  Hope you can 'bear with'!  But I'm sure with all your fabulous creations/entries, there'll be no shortage of pink in the area...  I was so impressed by the amount of fabulous entries there were for the Valentines Challenge..

Now .... itching to get out the 'bling'??  This challenge gives you full permission to be as over the top and put as much sparkle on as you like!!  I can't wait to see your fabulous entries..

Big hugs and Happy Pink Crafting..
