Got to Sparkle!

Our new challenge at Crafty Gals Corner is Sparkle and Glitter.  We want to see your most sparkly glitter and gems!

One big problem with sparkle is it is SO hard to photograph!  The other big problem with sparkle is that you find it on your face for days!!  I used BBKakes Flower Boy from Stitchy Bear's Digital Outlet and colored him with Copics.  I used a Wink of Stella clear pen to add some glitter to the flowers.  The small glitter heart is a button that I glittered myself.  Just dab your button on a glue pad and glitter away.  The polka dot paper is actually a glitter paper as well.  If you click on the picture you might be able to see it.  Love this kind of glitter!  It is trapped and stays where it is supposed to!  I pulled the legs off of some glitter brads and glued them in the corners.  That way I didn't have to hide the legs on the inside. =)

We have two wonderful sponsors this week.  You can click on the badges to visit the shops and have a look around.

Super cute and adorable card. Love the colour combo and all the sparkle! I totally agree with you, it's difficult to photograph and hangs onto you for weeks :-)
