All That Glitters

The Pink Elephant Challenge this week is:

All That Glitters
And I think I've just made this one by the seat of my pants!
I was asked to make a card for a little girl who is going to be a big sister in early March and her Aunty did not want her to feel left out! Grace is a very girly girl and loves pink and I decided to combine the commission with the challenge (with permission of course!) and to go all out on the sparkle too!

Sorry for the photos - again they are lit by the kitchen lights but hopefully they will show the sparkle! I've used glitter glue and very glittery card and glittery ribbons throughout. The rosette is handcut with the scalloped edge being punched hearts glued onto the reverse of the circle. Letters have been cut using a Cuttlebug Baby Face alphabet set and the little girl is all Sizzix dies with my own touches.

The vellum backing has been run through the D'vine Swirls embossing folder to give the card a little more texture.

It actually looks a lot better in real life and I hope that Grace and her Aunty are pleased with it!

  • Dies: Cuttlebug Baby Face alphabet, Cuttlebug D'vine swirls embossing and various Sizzix dies for the little girl and her clothes
  • Glitter Card, Pearlescent Card & Vellum: All from my stash
  • Ribbons: All from my stash
