Sparkly and Girly

Back with another card. Now, I am not sure how this post will turn out because something very strange has happened to my editor page thingy. Why do they have to keep changing things? I get soooo confused.
However...I had a fantastic day on Saturday at the Sincerely Yours Craft Show at the Royal Highland Centre. Found out about it by chance on Thursday night and it was great. lots more new goodies, especially my Spectrum Noir pens which I am loving but still need loads of practise with. So, after spending a small fortune, once again, I thought I best make good use of the stuff's the one of the results.

I have used Spectrum Noirs pens to colour the image which is a Whimsy Stamps one - gorgeous don't you think? The papers are First Edition 'Summer Breeze'  - these are embossed and glittery, sparkly ones (gorgeous, but the photo doesn't do them justice ) and sticking out the back of the image is my new die, 'Sophia's Heart' from Cheery Lynn Designs. I thought this die was gorgeous when I seen it on a sample card and just had to have it but I hate to say I am very disappointed in the way it cuts. It has been through the Bug about 20x and have wax rubbed on it and everything and it still won't cut the middle out. Needless to say, I have emailed the shop I bought it from to ask their advice.

I would like to enter this card into a couple of challenges. These are Card Makin Mamas  - Make It Girly; Stampin' for the Weekend - Sparkle and Shine.

Thanks for stopping by to visit
