Anything Goes with Sparkle at the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today sees the next challenge at the


and the first of my holiday days from work, whoop whoop !!!!! 
so onto the theme this week set by the very talented Tracie of

Anything Goes with Sparkle

Thought  I would try to avoid the glitter on this one, so found some gorgeous sparkly papers, however I sort of put so much on the card that you could not see it hehehehehe :) so had to add extra glitter to the image.
awwwwwwwwwwww okay I know it is pink!!!! but thought it went so well with the burgundy.  These papers are the Me 2 You, small stack available at Grimsby Crafts, the image is Nellie Snellen also available at Grimsby Crafts.  The base layer and contrast is a silver mirror card.  I have added cheesecloth behind to soften the card and the large burgundy ribbon was crying out to be made into a bow to sit beautifully on the corner.  I added flowers distressed with spun sugar and icicles stickles, the flowers are from Wild orchid, the pearls from the Hobby House and the little snowflakes for the extra added touch.  The sentiment is from the six pack of round sentiments from Wild Rose (and yes Janet love the Wild Rose papers and obviously these stamps)

I added glitter around the image plate and sentiment as well as some on the image, here is a close up of the double burgundy bow, scrumptious. You can just see how I have over stamped the sentiment with a snowflake in the spun sugar distress ink.

Here is a close up of the image
coloured with copics with added stickles for snowflakes and liquid appliqué for falling snow.
