Barb: Happy Turkey Day...New Image Release

This is a special time---a new image release over at
CJ has been working hard to create some new beautiful images. You will definitely want to check them out
For this challenge we want you to use Bling, Bling, Bling
Our sponsor this week is Delicious Doodles

This week the "WINNER" will receive:
"3 IMAGES OF CHOICE" From Delicious Doodles! Along with the "WINNERS BADGE" to place on their blog!
The "TOP 3 WINNER'S" will each receive "ONE IMAGE OF CHOICE" from CJ and COWGIRL UP IMAGES!

When I received CJ's new image, I knew just what I wanted to create with it. This card is called a
"Spring Card." (The directions for making it can be found below in the RECIPE.) We were to add lots of bling to our project. I started with this fancy DP and paper pieced some of the feathers.  The other feathers were the reverse side of this paper.I added the foil leaf stickers and used glitter for the sentiment as well as the waddle. I outlined the feathers with a black Gelly Roll pen.The coloring was done with prisma pencils blended with odorless mineral spirits. I trimmed some of the card with a gold leafing pen. I can picture this at each place setting on a Thanksgiving table!! (Guess I better get crafting!)
Stickers: Nicole
Glitter:  Doodlebug sugar coating
Gold leafing: Krylon
Colored with Prisma Pencils
Highlighted with black Gelly Roll Pen
Card Design: 
Spring Card

I hope that you enjoy my card and will try to make one or more for your Thanksgiving decorations or to send to a special friend or relative! Please feel free to leave a comment and/or follow our blog.
