Here comes the.......

BLING!  That's what the wedding some should be......because when I girl gets engaged or married - the first thing almost everyone says it "let me see the ring....."  When they really should say ....."well - another one bites the dust!"  LOL!!!  Just kidding......my sarcasm can't help but escape sometimes, guess this is one of the times.

BUT - before we get too deep into this eye candy for the day - I won some MAJOR blog candy over at Create with Connie and Mary....check it out - I feel like lucky royalty.  :)  While you  are there, check out this week's sketch challenge - that was where I started for today.

Here is the sketch:

I did stray a bit with the panel in the lower corner.....you know me.....I always seem to stray a tiny bit.  sorry about that.  Here is what I came up with:

See when I got the whole BLING thing from?  Did you get a look at that rock on the sentiment?  Oh - you didn't???  Well take a closer look:

The sentiment is from Word Play - I must say that this really is a versatile sentiment set.  I put a little bit o'bling on the ring.  All of the white you see on the card is shimmer white card stock - I'm not sure how well that came out in the pictures.......It is very pretty in real life...as opposed to fake life?????  Oops - I digress again....sorry ;)

The sentiment was punched out with the curly label punch and mated with the designer label punch - cute, huh?  I didn't come up with that, but put it in my mind bank to use someday....I guess this is "someday."

When I was getting ready to stamp the sentiment on the inside, I lined it up in the middle and then thought to myself.....you know there is NO rule saying the sentiment has to be in the middle....or even centered.....I am a rebel, that's for sure. 

Well - that about sums it up for today.  Let me know what you think of this little blingin' baby - and also - I changed up the blog banner for you as well.
