Magical Monday - PCC Image & Bling

This weeks challenge over on the Paper Cupcakes challenge blog Patti Nelson brings us this week's challenge of using the freebie "Easy Does It" by Paper Cupcakes and also wants us to use some bling. Easy Peasy and who doesn't love some bling!? I kept my bling a little toned down. I so wanted to make my card lean towards more masculine so I kind of used some masculine bling! LOL.. OK... I am sure there is such a thing a masculine bling, so if you have never seen it before, well you can locate it on my card! :O)

I colored my image with my colored pencils (my fav) and used some scraps out of my big 'ole box of scraps. I just love this Martha Stewart border punch "Gothic Arches" that I used and I had some odd chipboard pieces which is where I got the "dream big" piece. I thought if you could balance that many cupcakes at one time without dropping any you had to be dreaming big. I usually always place my image straight on my cards so I thought I would try tilting it some and I must say I had a hard time leaving it that way initially, but I kept telling myself in the end it would be alright! HA! I think it did turn out alright as well. So what do you think?





Well, thanks for stopping by and realize just how much I love your luvins if you leave some! Also, don't forget to dream a little dream today and if you're going to dream a little dream think twice and dream big!

Love the image and what you did with it. I love that punch also, but then again, love all the punches. I love seeing all the DT cards, but then I feel like I am stealing if I use any of their ideas. I think your card looks cute tilted.
