Bellarific Friday: Bling

Good morning! This week the challenge on Blogabella is bling. Great challenge; I love the stuff! DD says I went overboard, but I was having a good time.... I'm disappointed in the photo; the crystals have a yellowish cast. In real life, they are are clear and look lovely.
I used a layout I saw on Kathleen's blog, Will Stamp for Wine; Kathleen makes the prettiest cards! I thought the layout was interesting and would showcase the cake well; I like the elegance of the monochromatic pink, gray and white. The cake is colored with Prismas and I did use glitter on the "beaded" icing; although it's hard to see in the photo.
Image: Stamping Bella
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, SU! Basic Gray, SU! Pink Pirouette DP
Embellies: White Satin Ribbon (my stash), Doodlebug Glitter, Swarovski Flatback Crystals
Extras: Spellbinder's Nestabilities, EK Success 3D Dots
You can see more bling-y goodies on Blogabella. Em is looking for a new Bella Babe and the current DT will be picking the new member based on the cards entered this month. I know it's a longshot, but "nothing ventured, nothing gained". I really, really want to be a Bella Babe so wish me luck!
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoy your day!
