Anything goes with the option of sparkle ........

The challenge over at Papertake Weekly is anything goes with the option of sparkle, and as I love sparkle, glitter and bling I went to town on this card and co-ordinating box! 
ps  Can you see that large clear stick on gem trying to make a bid for freedom down at the bottom right hand corner?  I stuck it back on, and wished I had noticed it before editing the photos!

I coloured the image with Copics pens then glittered with Stardust stickles, added some white traditional fan pattern Cluny lace and some 12mm silver lame ribbon (which I coloured with a Copics pen to tone with the backing papers - which means you can have glittery ribbon in any colour you fancy!)
My usual flowers consists of 30mm and 13mm white mulberry roses with white pretty blossoms.  I tied a double bow with Wavecrest Seam Binding and added a snowflake charm and a silvery blue star pin.
Continuing on with the 'sparkle' theme, I added parts of a Zva sparkly flourish to my hand-made box (my box making skills are improving every day!!)

Seam Binding, Cluny Lace, Snowflake Charm, Mulberry Flowers, Star Pin and Zva Flourishes are all from http://www.ribbongirl.co.uk/

I was pleased with the end result and will put this in my Christmas card pile for someone special.
See you soon, Mary G x
