Can You Say Bling?

The title of this post is exactly what I said to my hubby before showing him this card. I've been making a lot of CAS cards lately and missed my bling, so I went all out on this one. I even threw in some satin ribbon and a crocheted flower I've been hoarding. What do you think?

Paper: Baja Breeze, Ski Slope dp (SU)
Accessories: crocheted flower (Imaginisce), silk flowers (Petaloo), ribbon (May Arts), rhinestones (Prima)
