I bet by now, you have had to put on your sunglasses from seeing all of the bling that the Beary Scrappy Gals have been sharing with you this week. This week's theme was so much easier for me than a CAS card!
I started with an image from Elisabeth Bell, which was just perfect for the Doodlebug Designs paper I had chosen.
In case you have ever wondered whether or not you can use our thick mulberry paper with your Cricut machine, I found out the answer is yes! I wanted my ice cream cone to have lots of texture, so I embossed the cone with the herringbone cuttlebug folder, and cut the ice cream out of Fuchsia mulberry paper. I was really pleased with the textures!
As for sparkles - this card has it all! Stickles, crystals, glitter paper!
Check back on the Beary Scrap DT blog on Monday to see our new inspirations!

On the 13th of each month, the Design Team for Really Reasonable Ribbon will host a blog hop. We will be highlighting different ribbons from the store - and every month, you will have the chance to win our Ribbon of the Month kit! How awesome is that? If you have been following the ribbon path to get here, you should have arrived from Kym's blog. If you just stumbled upon this hop, then you will want to go back to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Ramblings to start. Be sure to leave a little love at each team member's post to be eligible to win this month's kit.
Also, I have some Blog Candy up for grabs - just click on the link to find the entry details.
I made a heart easel card using a digital image from Elisabeth Bell. I punched holes around my heart using a Crop-o-dile, and then started adding lots of purple ribbon - Gingham purple, Purple-lavender woven dots, sheer ombre lavender/blue, satin reversible.
For my base, I used some of the scrumptious Sheer woven rosettes - lavender.
This ribbon is so gorgeous, and Bonnie has added new colors!!! Can you say, Gini's shopping basket is going to be overflowing?
So, I guess it's time to get hopping to the very talented Amber's Blog. I know she will have something fantastic to share with you.
Here is a blog hop list for you, just in case you get lost along the way.

Welcome to Monday and another challenge day at Karen's Doodles. This week Joey has chosen the theme - Summer Zest. We want to see yellow, orange, lime green and a splash of blue. It really is a fun summer palate to play with!
I used Butterfly Puppy and think that he looks quite happy to be surrounded by such vibrant colors. The papers are from Kaisercraft.
There's not much time left for summer, so you better pull out your bright papers and have a go at this while you can. We can't wait to see what you come up with.
