Anya Ink #2 Pink & Sparkly

This morning I have been a bit busy changing my blog - thanx to Mandy so showing me how (no more boring pink)  Anyway I hope you like my new look!!  I'm still figuring out the header so hopefully that will be up soon too, and then it will all match - yay

This fortnight's challenge is pink and sparkly over at Anya Ink.  I've had so much (messy) fun with this one, I've smothered my card in glitter - as well as myself hehehe - and it looks so pretty!! (me too hehehe) I think  the camera needs a glitter function on it, because my photo's just don't show how sparkly it actually is :-(

So my card is kinda like a Gate fold but not - I've used heaps of glitter on the white edges and on the Flower in Dahlia's hair, also put a bit of crystal effects in the middle of the flower - but the picture doesn't show:-(  I've also used my brand spankin' new Martha Stewart Doily Punch - which the postie gave to me this morning - yay!!

So this is my card un-folded. You can see the colours better in this one, and my butterfly looks just about right with the glitter around the outside and the bling in the middle of it.
