The Flower Challenge #25 'Add Sparkle'

Hi there friends, I am here with more DT cards to share for 'The Flower Challenge'. It's an easy one again, well  I think so anyway....we want you to.....'Add Sparkle' . So add some glitter, sequins, gems etc. to add a little sparkle to your cards.

I think this months challenge is appropriate for us too as it's also our 2nd Birthday and we are feeling all 'sparkly' ;) I can't believe it's been two years...but months rush by don't they! we have certainly enjoyed seeing all your fabulous cards in our gallery each month. I do hope you keep joining us over the next coming months and years also. We do so love seeing what you make !

Anyway just to mention there are also a few surprises for our winners this time, including PRIZES! and a Guest Spot for someone too. See our blog for more details! now come and see my cards ;)

AltENew, Catteleya, Pretty Pink Posh
White Linen card
AltEnew Build a Flower 'Cattleya' stamps & die
AltENew water colours
Versafine Onyx Black ink
Copic pen
Little Things sequins
Orange Pearls from stash
Quickie glue pen
Glamour dust
 I hope you can see all the sparkle I used here better.

I made my card base then stamped and coloured my flower images. After adding some quickie glue and lots of glamour dust I attached them to my card. I raised the top flower up using 3d pads  for interest.

Then I stamped my sentiment and went around the edge using a matching Copic pen and attached it to my card also. A few matching pearls and my card was finished. Now I think about it gems would have added even more 'sparkle' but these pearls matched and I was eager to use them ;)

I also made this card, hope you can see all the 'sparkle' ;)
Pretty Pink Posh, Flower Challenge #25
 Hmm yes that 'I' does look a tad wonky lol...I fixed it later on don't worry!
