Heather's Spark

This week Heather had us to use some bling. Well bling is just about all you got on this card. I was just sitting here wishing about some things. You know wishing is something our mother's teach us at a very early age. Remember your mother or someone teaching you "First star I see tonight, I wish I may, wish I might, have the wish, I wish tonight". All our lives, we see that one star, and our minds automatically start the wish. This is just a piece of card stock, that I randomly placed little diamond gems on. They came from a pkg of gems made to embellish cell phones. I found them for $1.00 and they had 300 on the card. They are the tiniest ones I have seen. The swirly thing was lying on my desk, so added it and the word WISH. On the inside of the card, I put the definition of the word wish. I will use it as a birthday card. This is one time that the picture sure did not flatter the object. It really does look much better in real life. The dark contrast of the CS and the blings I really like. I wished the lighting would have been better. Thanks for letting me share. I'll be back tomorrow night with Pat's challenge. Hope everyone is staying warm. It is 24 here in the foothills of NC on Thursday night at 10:45. I'm sure some of you are thinking that is balmy compared to what they you experiencing.

Ok, buying a pack of cell phone gems is the most clever crafty thing I've heard in a while! I love it!

And the card is really pretty too! I really like how simple, but dramatic, it is!
