PTI WCMD - Challenge #3 India

The next PTI Challenge stop is India. This is a country I've never visited but understand (from others who have) it is a land of amazing beauty and tradition. From the food to the dress to the art to the architecture.

Challenge # 3: One thing that is prominent everywhere is jewels, rhinestones & gold. We are to embrace this culture and incorporate rhinestones, sequins & jewels in a fun & artistic way.

OK, well this is probably a tad more bling (no make that BLING!) than I normally use on a card ~~but, I was trying for the bejewled and bedazzled look.
My Card:
Cardstock all from Recollections Paper Collection.
Stamped image is from Inkadinkadoo and inked in Caribbean Sea from Kaleidacolor.
Tools ~ Martha Stewart lace border punch and Cuttlebug's Floral Fantasy is embossed on the purple.
Embellishments ~ Jewels are from K&Company, glitter is Sickles Gold and the silk flower is from my vast collection sitting in a vase on my Craft desk.


  1. This is so pretty! I love the bird and the bling, and I love purple and red together. Gorgeous card, Helen.

  2. Wonderful gold elements. Stunning job on the India challenge.

    It's a good life!
