Glittery Flower!

At CAS-ual Fridays this week they want to see CAS cards with glitter and bling. Glitter is usually not my thing but I think the result this time was quite OK:


I used Crafters Companion Glitter spray for the flower and before it had dried I added some Martha Stewart turqoise glitter. I had Stickles for the leaves and added some rhinestone bling too  - inspired by the heart and colors from A Blog Named Hero's Blog Banner ( just a little darker turqoise than I remembered... (-: )
+ I was once again inspired by the beautiful pictures at Jay Gees Nook - especially the beanbag - chair ( edited thanks to Jessie!) or whatever it might be called in English....


I'm also entering this for the Anything Goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp.

I love the flower (of course!) and the cute little heart bling! And yes, it's called a beanbag in English, usually a 'beanbag chair' since little beanbags are used for games. Anyway...
