SFTW - Sparkle and Shine

It's Friday so let's get busy having some fun - break out those crafting supplies and play along with the Stampin' for the Weekend challenge.   This fortnight the challenge theme is "Sparkle and Shine".  Make those cards pretty with some glitter and don't spare the bling.  I love sparkly blingy cards so I can't wait to see all your creations.

For my card I used some stickles on the lipstick and the gold ring on the lipstick case.  It doesn't show that well in the photo but you can see it IRL. You also may not be able to see that there are three rhinestones under the sentiment.  Then there's the heart bling on the image layer.  It's not a lot of bling but it's just the right touch for this card.  

One of the reasons I didn't go crazy with the bling is because I went a little crazy with die cuts.  I'm a sucker for hearts and there are four different heart dies used on this card. I'd use more if I could figure out where to put them.  

Here's the deets:
stamp - Stampin' Up Making a Point
ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
paper - Stampin' Up Blushing Bride, Real Red, Whisper White and Baja Breeze card stock and More Amore Specialty DSP
miscellaneous - copics; Simon Says Floating Hearts and String of Hearts dies; Spellbinder's Rectangle and Fleur de Lis Rectangles,  Heart and Scalloped Heart dies;  stickles, bling

Here's the challenges:
Stampin' for the Weekend - Sparkle and Shine
Splitcoast Stampers Lovefest2014I - Die Crazy
Moving Along with the Times - 4 Things Beginning with L (lines - with the heart strung on them, lipstick, love - the hearts, Lis - fleur de lis)
