Polka dot couches with bling pillows

I was having a serious night of indecision. I am a CAS girl who likes clean and simple cards and I can normally make a decision, stick with it (pun intended) and move on. Last night, something was in the air and I spent 2 hours making this card. Not sure why. I wanted to make something for the Cas-tastic Wednesday "bling it up" challenge and being a non- bling kinda girl I had to go digging. In the boys' craft box I found a long forgotten container of glitter glue. After getting glitter glue everywhere I remembered why I'd banished it to the bottom of the spare bedroom closet. So please note the sparkling throw pillows on the couch, I'm sure there are people out there who have sequins on their pillows? I have been having far too much fun with this PTI On The Couch set and I wanted to make a polka dot couch for the Treehouse Thursday Challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Challenge dot challenges. I love how Cosmo Cricket Early Riser paper looks, wouldn't it be fun to have such playful couches? I've paper pierced the couches, so I'll enter another card in the ABC Design Blog challenge (are you ladies sick of me yet?).

Materials: PTI couch and sentiment, Cosmo Cricket Early Riser patterned paper, silver glitter glue, Stampin Up Black ink, Silver brads, vellum, Stampin Up blue card stock, white gel pen, Stamping up black embossing powder

I'd love to have the courage to have couches like that! They are awesome. And yes, I've seen blinged up pillows-just not in my house with the little ones. Great card!

Speaking as someone who once had glitter glue on her couch-sooo not by choice- I have 2 things to say...1. Those pillows rock! 2. There is a reason glitter glue should be banished from little boys! Put the cap on and hide it again! :) Just saving the world one couch at a time! LOL!

I'll never get tired of that stamp set ... and glitter glue + children = disaster. Lock that dangerous stuff up!!

Hope you're enjoying a terrific weekend, Kiddo! Sending hugs!
