Crafty Cardmakers Spotlight DT card - Glitter & Sparkles for the Video inspiration from week #1

Welcome to our Spotlight challenge this week at Crafty Cardmakers where our specialty is
 Glitter & Sparkles.

Some of us are using the challenge from week #1 for our inspiration this week.
Week #1 is a video inspiration for the following video:

When you click the link, you should be redirected to the You Tube video "Bad Romance by Lady GaGa".
If not, then I messed up royally & inserted the wrong quickly, go find it now!
And let it inspire you as it did to me considering this was my first time watching it.

I personally had never done a video inspiration challenge before so this was REALLLLYYY Fun.

First of all I'll let you know that our spotlight challenges DOES have a bit of candy to be won , & if you play your cards right you could win week #1's prize (Mrs. Susie Sugars prize) & this candy bag.

Secondly, let me explain how:

1. Make a card for the video inspiration challenge- enter it into week #1's linky
2. Make a card with glitter & sparkle for this spotlight challenge- enter it into week #2's linky
3. Make a card with glitter & sparkle BASED ON the video(as I did)- enter it into BOTH week's linkies.

I took the colors & textures from the video & I ran with it!
It's about a Bad Romance, hey , so what's romance without a heart?

    And the mesh netting, sparkles, metal charm, red ribbon, crocheted flower, silver half doily & red & black bling all resemble different aspects of the video!

Fire, lace, fur & wicked outfits set this video apart from any other's I've ever seen.


Do u get what's going on here.................
It'll make sense as you scroll down.
Flowers, stems, more mesh, more lace, more bling & a bit of heat embossed elements on the black base

The sentiment that says it all
"The world is but a canvas to the imagination" (from Sentimental Sundays)

So come on over to Crafty Cardmakers & get in on all the action!!

"OMG" Corry this is a rock video all wrapped up in one card. This is why your cards take longer than mine, I would never have the patience for all these details, oh my wow!
