Crafts and Me Challenge - Guest Design Card - Wednesday 25 January 2012

Here is my second and last card as Guest Designer for the Crafts and Me Challenge Blog.  This time the challenge is "pink and sparkly".  I have used some yummy backing papers I got from a friend for Christmas.  They have glitter all over them and are so yummy but they had to be used.  The gorgeous image I have used is called "Morning Glories".  The digital stamps at Crafts and Me are only £2 each so are a real bargain.  I have coloured the image with Promarkers and highlighted areas with Stickles glitter glue and my Sakura Stardust clear pen.  I have cut around the image and then distressed with my Tim Holtz's distressing tool and then used a chalk ink pad around the edges.  To add a bit more sparkle the card has been mat and layered with some bright pink holographic card.  I've had this for ages and ages as it was too bright for most cards but I think it helped to bring this card alive.  The card has been finished off with some lace, seam binding which I have ruffled, glittery gem decoration, Craftwork Cards sentiment, some flowers I have made with two punches and then added glitter glue to the centre (I've had some bad buys with glitter glues and normally stick with Stickles now but I did try out another make which I am really happy with - Craft Essentials), Marianne's Designs flourish and then finally I got the pink flowers for my birthday and have added some Stickles glitter glue to these.

I have really enjoyed my time this month with the Crafts and Me Challenge Blog.  Thank you so much for having me.
