Bling Baby at Loves Rubberstamps - GDT

Good morning. What a fabulous weekend I had up North with my bestest blogging buddies. The GNPE was  brilliant - a lot quieter than the NEC but I still bought lots of goodies :o) Just need to find a few more hours in the day to get to play with them lol!!! Will share some photos at the end of this post.

So I'm here with my first post of the day to share my GDT for 

and this week the theme is 


Here's what I did:
 Image - Bildmalarna 'Christmas Gift' coloured with Flexmarkers and PM's
 Sentiment tags - Sizzix Tim Holtz Tiny Tags & Papermania 
Tied on with Bakers' Twine
DP's Back to Basics 'Vintage Christmas'
 Close up of the scrummy 'blinged' up poinsettia - die cut from velvet paper using Spellbinders poinsettia die.
20mm Diamante spacer and 14mm Acrylic Flatback Gem Aurora  as a centre piece and sprinkling of Crystal Stickles

Please pop over to the main challenge blog to check out the awesome inspiration from the regular DT.

Pile it On - Vintage or Shabby Chic
The Crafty Pad - Vintage 
Paper Play - Shine on/Bling
Simon Says Stamp - Glimmer/Sparkle
