Charmed, I'm Sure (Technique Blog Hop)

For the Technique Blog Hop this month, we were inspired by the "Charmed, I'm Sure" technique tip on page 133 of Close To My Heart Annual Inspirations book.  Dazzle up your papercrafts with the shine of a few small charms from the Base & Bling line.  Tie them on, adhere them, or simply let them dangle to add a little charm to all of your projects.  

If you arrived from Jen's Messy Studio, then follow along with the link at the bottom of this post to continue the Technique Blog Hop

Inspiration for my card was the gold feather dangle Base & Bling charm.  An arrow and a rhinestone were also added and tied around the stamped piece using some Metallic Baker's Twine.  A couple of images from the Feathers stamp set were inked with Desert Sand and then the edges rolled in Cocoa ink to add a bit of dimension.  The fun pastel papers are from the special Year >> Noted kit (available for National Papercrafting Month) and the card sketch is pattern #26 in Make It From Your Heart Volume 2.  To add another touch of gold, some Gold Polka-Dot Washi Tape is used between the two patterned papers.
