Glitterbabe Challenge - 2/9/10

Over at the Glitterbabe Challenge the topic this week is "free up a freebie and very sparkly".  Well I haven't been taking part in many challenges of late as I was getting ready for my charity stall but now that's finished and although I have a few commissioned cards to make, I thought I'd rebel and just do a challenge card.  I have used Stef's little baby chick - isn't he cute.  Shall I let you into a secret?  As Stef said the challenge had to be sparkly I've added some Sakura Stardust clear pen to his nappy so he's got a glittery nappy in a certain light!!!  A friend was given some cards/papers from a colleague and being a good friend she shared them with me.  I thought this arch shaped card would just do the trick for this chick.  For the centre of the card I used strips of paper I'd used for a commissioned card and made it into a lattice which was a requirement for another challenge (see below) and then backed it with some sparkly glitter paper.  The image I coloured in with promarkers.  I have embellished the card with an "it's a boy" sentiment from the Card Toonz CD by Andy Carolan, some fabric hearts and finally some small metal baby feet charms.  I won these in some candy last year and thought they'd go well on this baby card.

This card also fits the following challenges:
