Cooking with Cricut Challenge- Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend- Bling it on

I am really excited to share my card with you all this week for the Cooking with Cricut Challenge.  This week the challenge is Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend or Bling it On.  For my card I selected to use this cute little bear from Paper Crafting World.  This is my second card with my new Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  I have a lot to learn about using the markers but I like the way this cutie patootie bear came out with her roses.  
The frame was cut from Elegant Edges page 22 using the Oblong frame and shadow. The frame was embossed with a 5 x 7 rose embossing folder to match the roses.   
I added some gems to bling out the roses and the frame.  
The stamp sentiment was $1 at Michaels and says "You make me so very happy"
I used the center cut of the frame on the inside of the card for my writing and sentiment. 
For now the inside is blank so I can use it for almost any occasion.   
(Sorry I forgot to take a pic of the inside)
For the ribbon I used cream seam binding and the same seam binding colored with Glimmer Mist.  
I hope you will join us this week for the Cooking with Cricut challenge and bling out your projects. 
Also check out all the great digital stamps, paper piecing patterns and page kits Melin has designed for your crafting pleasure.
