If You Don't Like Bling, Look Away Now!

I found this fabulous free digi image at Free Vintage Digital Images and decided it would be perfect for going wild with the bling.  It was coloured with Promarkers and then bejewelled with an assortment of gems and loads of Liquid Pearls.  Boy did I have fun!
The papers, ribbon, bow, buttons and sentiment stamp are all Papermania, from the Portobello Road range.
I'm not much of a royalist really, most of us in the north of Scotland are pretty indifferent to the monarchy or vehemently Scottish Nationalist, but from a design point of view, I do love the whole red, white and blue thing that's so popular just now.


I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Desmet Designs - red, white and blue
Stampalot - medals and monarchs
Di's Digi Designs - show us that bling
Card Crafter's Circle - #23 - sparkle
Papertake Weekly - true colours
