Dazzling Diamonds Elements of Style

Ohh this card was fun to make.  I received the inspiration to make this card from Andrea's card.  When I saw her card I said "oh my" out loud.  Her card is very stunning.  The Crystal Effect bottle beside her card had me very curious so I went to her blog to see the recipe for her card so I could try it.  I haven't used Crystal Effect in a long, long time.  Another product I haven't used in a long time is my blender pens and re-inkers to add color to a project.  I am more of a base stamp girl than a detailed stamp girl.  You can see Andrea's card here.  Isn't her card amazing.  Wow!  I was thinking of featuring this card at my June 27 Summer Mini stamp camp but then I thought there may be too many little details in it so instead I will demonstrate the use of Re-Inkers, Blender Pens, Crystal Effect and Dazzling Diamonds at one of my upcoming Stampin' Technique & Scrapbook Clubs.  That will be fun!  Thanks Andrea for your inspiration.  Wow your card is simply amazing!
