Sparkle & Shine - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Good morning peeps,
I've lots going on today, appointments to get to and more birthday presents to buy, oh for a nice quiet day in my craft room.

Today is new challenge day at
this weeks challenge is

My lovely teamies and I are showcasing Tattered Angels products this week & as always if you have them we'd love to see them but it's not compulsory to enter the challenge, any sparkle & shine is welcome.

For anyone interested I recently did a little tutorial showing tips for making that lovely sparkle show up in photographs, if you want to take a peek it can be found HERE
'

This little card is a commissioned card & to be honest I'm not happy with it but with life the way it is at the moment I'm not sure I'll be able to find time to make a replacement. I wish I'd used a satin ribbon on it, I'm sure I'd like it more if I had, but hey ho can't love 'em all lol.
Ingredients -
Image - Whiff Of Joy
Pearls - Blue Moon
Flowers - Prima

In the close up piccy you can really see the gorgeous sheen and sparkle from the glimmer mist. I love these CC Designs butterfly dies, you will be seeing these often, and I think I "need" the balloon dies too lol.

As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring this challenge with a whopping $50 in store spending spree.

The new Magnolia Sweet Rainbow Collection is available to pre order in store, go check them out as always they are adorable


I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Sketch Saturday - fab sketch, Fun With Shapes & More - congratulations, Pear Tree Designs - stamped images, Make It Monday - anything goes, A Spoon Full Of Sugar - anything goes, Creative Inspirations - glitz & bling, Pixie Dust - make it shiny, Sew Many Cards - anything goes
Thanks for stopping by
