Welcome!

My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.

Bling Bling!

Hey Everyone,

Are you ready for a fun challenge? Dust off your bottles of stickles and grab your rhinestones, because this week is all about bling! Use an image from My Grafico and play along with us this week. The design team is using Prom Night elements by Cupcake Cutiees on their "blinged up" projects this week, and this great set could be yours, if you play along.
I chose to use the dress element from the set above and added some rhinestones to the waist, and glitter to the top and hem. (If you are wondering how I got the cool pattern effect on the dress, it was a goof. My printer was running out of ink...LOL! I changed the cartridge and printed it again, but I liked this one better. Love it when stuff works out...wink!) I also added some clear gems to the center of the flowers on the background paper. In real life the flowers have a fuzzy feel to them and add a great bit of texture to the card.
Thanks for dropping by today and visit the My Grafico Challenge Blog for the rest of the design team creations and to link up your card and play along!

Details not listed above-Paper: The Paper Company, DCWV, Nesties and rhinestones from my supplies.
Challenges that this card is linked to are as follows:
Cute Daisy May-As You Like It
