Posted by PicasaFirst dare for 2007, Yay...and a great one to start the year off with.. this week we had to use Beads or Bling... I love using both, but this card only called for Bling... so that's what I used.
Thanks girls for a lovely dare, pop on over to Daring Card Makers and check out what all of the girls have created, But wear you sunnies, cause it's sparklin' over there....
