Dutch Dare design team debut

Hi everyone, I'm thrilled to tell you all that I've joined the design team at Dutch Dare Card Challenges.

Our challenge for this week is 'Bling is the thing' so we want to see some bling on your creations. Here's my card...
I've made an A4 card using a Saturated Canary image, which I've coloured using Copics. The dies are both Cheery Lynn and I've also added some black lace, (don't start singing Agadoo!), from my stash. I've added gem flowers all along the lace and also on the flourish. The butterfly has gems on it and I also added 3 to the bottom of the image plate. Everything is matted with black card...this seems to be one of my favourite styles at the moment, I love how it sets the papers off. The ribbon is also from my stash. The main backing paper is from the Forever Friends pink parfait pack (I know, it's green, not pink). Here's a couple of close-ups...

I hope you'll hop on over to the challenge and have a look what my talented team mates have made for your inspiration. I do hope you'll join in the never know, you might be lucky enough to win 5 digis from Di's Digi Downloads...

I would like to enter this for the following:-
Cute Card Thursday - Bling it up 
Party Time Tuesdays - Colour inspiration 
Fab'n'Funky - use leaves somewhere
