Sparkle!

I don't usually use a lot of glitter on my cards, but then I'm not a nine year old, girlie girl who loves sparkle, fairies and unicorns.  I made this card for my great niece.

The glitter card was bought it a pound store, 10 A4 sheets in five different colours for £1.  As well as being a bargain, the glitter doesn't come off at all and is fine for die cutting.  I used a unicorn die I bought on eBay and MB 'Stitched Rectangles' for matting and layering.  The letters are from the MB 'Parker Upper Case Alphabet' set of dies.

I am joining in the following challenges:

  1. Such a fabulous and unique card. I've been working with glitter today, which I am not a fan of either as it gets everywhere. Great that you managed to get the non shed card x Will take a look when I am next in town. Such a pretty card x

  7. This is definitely the best kind of girlie card Liz, and I'm sure your Great Niece will love it. The die has taken the glitter card really well and the silver goes beautifully with the pink. x
