52 CCT Embellishment Challenge #1

Well, now. I have a question for you, class. Can anyone see a common embellishment on all the cards I've made for this month's challenges? Anyone? Yes, you in the back? CORRECT! RHINESTONES!!! I LOVE them. They are my crafting drug of choice...I have oodles of them! SO, this week at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown, I'm asking to see a Christmas card with rhinestones. AT LEAST 3. But we all know we've gone crazy with them! ;) Go on over and see Jacqueline's cards, too!!! Then you'll see! But I digress...here are MY cards. ;)

Here's my first card~

Second card (was going for a starry night thing)~

Details~


What do you think? Enough bling?! ;) PS: The second card is PURPLE. Why does my deep purple always photograph as black-ish? Anyone else have this problem as well?! Anyway, I hope you come on over and play with us--we have such fun! And then you can look at everyone's creations--they're always fabulous! Merry stamping!!!

Who said CAS cards can't have bling? :D Both give me inspiration, though I'm not sure that I have enough of a stash to copy the trees!

You can never have too much bling!!! I love the CAS design of your first card, but the rich colour and pretty sparkle on your second card has my heart!

Love all the bling.
My purple cards always look blue in photographs, very annoying.
Thanks for giving me an honourable mention in the last challenge.
I'm sure that I can find something to bling up with some gems for this week xx
