FFC #10 "BLING IT UP" & A special GD!

Hello my bloggy friends!
 Welcome to another Funday Friday Challenge.
This week's Challenge:
"Bling it up"
Starts: Friday, July 26th 12:00AM
Ends: Friday, August 2nd 6:00PM
(central time)
Our sponsor this week is Carri aka Abusybee
and she is offering not 1, not 2 but 3!! bags of skittles!!!
One lucky winner will receive three bags of skittles in the colors:
Watermelon, Slate and Wild Plum!
Carri is also our Guest Designer today!
So let's see what she created!

Carri's card is gorgeous! Look at that fairy wishing
 away some beautiful birthday wishes!
And look how she used her skittles
 on the mushroom!! Darling! I love it!
Thank you so much Carri for being our
 GD and sponsor this week!

Now Here is what I created this week for the challenge:

 I made this card with a special friend on my mind.
 So this will be going to her soon.
My card is a standard A2 size card.
My cardbase is black Bazzill CS.
My first layer is a pretty pink glittery piece of CS by Recollections. The pretty intricate black layer on top was cut from my pazzles machine. I used my trellis punch by Martha Stewart to give the bottom edge of my card
a "girly" lacey look. My sentiment comes from Lawn Fawn's stamp set, " Hello Friend". I stamped it on black CS with versamark, heat embossed it using some light pink embossing powder and cut the
edge into a banner. I used some of Carri's skittles on the ends.
To finish off my card, I added some bling from
Recollections and a cute pink
blossom flower from Bo Bunny which I added
3 skittles for the stamens.
Well that's my card for this Bling it up challenge.
I hope you like it!
