Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend - Charisma Cardz Challenge 24

Good Happy Thursday Morning!
Sorry about the late post but Mr. Blogger didn't do his job. I had this set to publish at 4:30 this morning, but for some reason it didn't auto post.
It's another fine day to start another challenge with us at Charisma Cardz. Our own Claire has chosen the theme of "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend".

Before we get to that though I want to thank all of you who took part in our challenge this past week! Your Sweet Creations were truly yummy and inspirational. So much talent out there in blogland.

Ok now onto the challenge, be sure to stop by our blog and get all the particulars of this week's challenge.

I took a slightly different spin on this week's challenge making a card with diamonds embossed in the background and sentiment, then sanded and added a few diamonds to make to intertwined hearts.

Plain cardstock
Cuttlebug Diamond embossing folder
Sentiment - Embossing frolder - Sizzix wedding series
Flowers - Stash

Sally, I have the cutest card under your name on my side bar, but I can't find it!? You must have changed your mind.

I think I'm back to making cards again. At least I sure hope so.
