now this weekend was the Mother in Law's annual fancy dress - the theme on this one was
Cowboy's and Indians

great shot, I thought, shame my photography on today's make doesn't look this clear and colourful!!

anyway here is my inspirational piece, but do hop over  to the main challenge site to see the rest of the amazing inspiration from my sister meeces :)

I decided that sparkle meant only one thing Xmas and glitter, so I made a Xmas card and again lots going on with this one :)
Base colour coffee pearlescent paper, the designer papers are from my stash although don't think you can actually see them as I got so carried away with delicious embellishments :(
I added a doily from my stash
Lace from the Hobby House although not currently in stock.
Flowers from my stash in white but added stickles
and a pin, liquid appliqué and nesties to complete the look
