Sisterhood of Crafters - Diamonds

Hello dear friends!
Wow!  Can you believe we are drawing to the end of January already!
Spring will be here before you know it!  Well .... maybe not that quick ... lol!
But one can hope!

A new month means it's time for a new challenge over
on the Sisterhood of Crafters Blog!
Our hostess today is Diane and the theme she has chosen is:

(use anything with a diamond shape
i.e. embossing folder, die, diamond print paper, etc)

Here's what I came up with . . .

I dipped into some of my older supplies to create
today's card.  I forget about my embossing folders (does that
tell you I have way too many toys to create with? ... LOL) but I spotted this
Quickutz 'Diamonds & Dots' folder and knew
it would be perfect for the design I had in mind.

Other products used are:
 (7 dies)
Sue Wilson Designs - Grace

Impression Obsession - Dies - Mr. & Mrs.
  Elizabeth Craft 'Wedding Charms'
Diamond Stickles
Gold Foil Paper

I wanted to be sure you could see the sparkle on
my diamond ring so here's a close up!  LOL

Challenges to share in:
Crafty Sentiments Designs Challenge  - New Beginnings
Stinkin' Inkers January Challenge  - It's New to Me
Always Fun Challenge #94 - Wedding or Anniversary
 The Paper Girls Challenge #168 - Sparkle & Shine
Double Trouble Paper Crafting Challenge - Love is in the Air

As you can see above, this sentiment die comes with the ampersand
but I thought it would be fun to use the ring charm in it's place.

I hope you'll come join in our challenge fun at The Sisterhood of Crafters!
My 'sistahs' have created some fabulous creations to help inspire you ...

 See you there!

As always, thanks SO MUCH for taking the time to stop by!
