Bring On The Bling

It is Wednesday again already which can me only one thing, a new challenge theme at Stampotique, this week France is our hostess and the theme she has chosen is 'Bring On The Bling', here is what France has to say:

"For the longest time, bling in arting was something I stayed as far away from as I could. I don't know how it happened or when, but I suddenly started to add touches of bling on almost every project. And guess what? I love it!
Now you might still be in that first place I was in, or you might be an avid bling user, but for this week's challenge I would like to see you use some bling! Be it a shiny ink spray, glitters you add or an iridescent paint effect, add some bling to your project!
It will for sure lighten up those days that are getting shorter and darker for us who are getting closer to winter!"

Personally I LOVE bling but I don't feel I have to use something that sparkles in every thing I do but it sure does make me smile when I do :)
For France's challenge I've made the above postcard and managed to sneak in a couple of France's stamps. 
The stamps I used are:
I have been blogging for a few years now and I honestly think that glitter and shiny things are just the hardest to photograph as this really does sparkle beautifully.
I do hope you like my postcard and join the challenge which will mean you will be in with a chance of winning $30/£19 to spend at the Stampotique online store :)
