Nothing says Lovin'...like something from the oven!!

Totally Papercrafts Challenge #77 - Bling it Up!!



Happy Friday my bloggy friends! It's Friday and not only is it almost the weekend but it's also time for a new Totally Papercraft's challenge!! Anne picked the theme this week and she has asked to see some BLING! I was coloring this image for my MIL and decided it would be perfect for this challenge. She is currently remodeling her kitchen. Hopefully she will invite us over for some "good cooking" when it is all finished. ** hint...hint **. I was going for the "Retro/I Love Lucy" feel for this card. For "bling" on the front I have added some swirls with red stickles, stickles on the polka dots, shoes, & pocket, silver pie plate and a crystal button.

On the inside I used my Gelly Roll pen in "silver star" to high light the handles on the stove, tea kettle and pan to give them a chrome look. I reached into my memory banks to try and remember my Mom's old egg shell colored stove. I think I got the color pretty close.


Looking forward to seeing your creations on the challenge blog.
Happy Crafting!!
