Sweet ‘n’ sparkly

This weeks challenge at Pear Tree Designs is Glitter/Sparkles.Our sponsor this time is One Stop Card Crafts and they are offering one lucky winner a prize!So what are you waiting for?Pop on over for more details and to check out the fabulous DT creations.

I decided to make a tent card as I haven’t made one for a while and it fitted with my idea for this card perfectly.The main image is a C C Designs Swiss Pixie and the Birdhouse is from the same set.Both have been coloured with Promarkers and have had touches of Diamond Stickles added even tho’  it doesn’t show well in the pic.(Deeply disappointed!)The papers are the My Mind’s Eye freebie that came with the August issue of Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine.I love these papers so much that I did some detective work and found out that in real life they’re from the Contrary Collection.The card I’ve used is Core’dinations Gemstones.It has a beautiful sparkly,pearlescent finish.I’ve used Classic and Scallop Oval Nestabilities to create the aperture and pierced around the edge of the frame.The white strip has been punched with the Martha Stewart Flower Bed Deep Edge Punch.The swirly leaf has been cut using Marianne Design Creatables Ribbon Flower 3 and the pink flower using Flora 1.The  petals on the paper rose have been edged with Diamond Stickles.I’ve added a little bird cut from the paper stack, more Stickles on his chest, and a butterfly charm to the Birdhouse.I’ve used pink and green pearls as finishing touches.All corners have had a small corner rounder punch used on them.
