A Little Bit of Sparkle

Happy Monday everyone,

I hope you all had a great weekend - I sure did. I was in Nottingham on Saturday at the Theatre Royal to see the Westend stage show 'Rock of Ages' - it was amazing, a fab way to spend my day.

Now onto all things crafty - it's time for our next challenge over at My Besties UK and we have been making a few changes again. Not only can you now enter without using a Bestie image, our challenges will now include an 'Anything Goes' option - although there is an extra prize if you add the additional theme to your design. For the next two weeks you can


So just to clarify - you can submit an 'Anything Goes' project OR follow the theme of 'Add a Little Sparkle' for the chance of winning an extra prize. Now I didn't need telling twice to 'sparkle' - I love a bit of bling, I do! Here's what I made for my DT project ...

I couldn't resist using some of my new LOTV papers (this one is from the 'Timeless Victorian' pad) and I edged it with a little 'Seedless Preserve' distress ink. I also used my new Spellbinders 'Scalloped Borders One' set to cut the bottom of the mats for the focal image. 

My Besties image is called 'Little Bestie Buglets' and can be purchased for just £1.82 from Sherri's Etsy store HERE. I coloured them using my Promarkers (colours below) and then added some fine glitter to certain areas. I also added fine crystal glitter around the edge of the image before layering it, together with a string of bling (this was hidden amongst a bundle of ribbon I bought recently - how fab!)

Extra embellies include some die-cut flowers with lilac pearl centres, die-cut leaves, a die-cut doily and my sentiment (which was produced on my pc).

Hope you like it - here's my colour choices ...

Almond, Blush, Dusky Pink
Lilac, Amethyst, Cool Aqua, Duck Egg
Baby Pink, Budding Rose
March Hare, Morning Mist

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
