Diamonds are STILL a Girl's Best Friend...

Today I am showcasing a blinged out Marilyn Monroe ala Gentlemen Prefer Blondes... It's amazing to me the cult following Marilyn has from movies like this one and Some Like it Hot... I actually made my 10-year-old daughter sit with me for an old movies film fest and these two titles, Breakfast at Tiffany's and My Fair Lady were also in the line up. I mean, with kids imitating artists who have passed away but have become icons of fashion and media, well, don't you think they should see the ORIGINAL film that inspired all the following? 

And now I will get off the soapbox... :)

So this card was made using Diamonds are A Girl's Best Friend from Sassy Studio Designs and I HAD to bling her up with some stickles for jewlery and ALL over... :) then there's the trademark big bow to tie it all together (pun intended, lol)...

Sassy Studios is sponsoring this week's challenge at Crafting When We Can and I will be submitting this one to Chocolate Coffee and Cards (color challenge), 613 Avenue Create (Anything Goes), One Stop Craft Challenge's Pastels challenge and Dream Valley Challenges (Happy Birthday).

Thanks for looking and enjoy your Sunday! :)
