Silver, Black and Bling

Yep, that's the challenge we have set for you this week at Catch The Bug, the Bugaboo digi affiliated blog.
This card is so not me - a Christmas card without traditional Christmas colours or bright colours!

Now I'm not really a 'bling' person so went out and bought some sticky gems. Can you see them on the card? No? That's because I can't find them...
So I had to improvise. I used mirri card for that reflective blingy quality, some glitter on the image and attached a sparkly silver bow beneath the image. Hope that is enough sparkle and bling to qualify.

For all the details about the challenge and the prizes, make sure you head on over to CATCH THE BUG right now. While there, make sure you have a look at the rest of our DT work and some projects from some special guests.

Don't forget, there's still a chance to join in with my giveaway to win some digital scrapbooking softwear from My Memories, simply by clicking on this post HERE and leaving a comment (no complicated rules, trick, just one comment and you could win!)
