Glitter glitter on the wall ......

Yeah I know it makes no sense ... but you know me :)

How are you today?  I hope you are fantastic and happy :)

Today I managed to create a card .... even though once again the little one had only a little nap ... sigh.  Luckily I had coloured my image last night.  And wouldn't you know it ... I kept waking up in the middle of the night thinking about how to put together this card ....... oh no I think I have a problem .... will have to start completing my cards before I go to bed I think ha ha ha.

I coloured this absolutely gorgeous Tiddly Inks Cast Your Spell fairy .... Isn't she stunning!  She was lovely to colour.  I used some glitter glue on her dress, wings and fairy dust.

On the base card I used a Martha Steward Glue Pad and some Glitter that I picked up from the local Spotlight store.  I hadn't used either of these before.  Actually quite easy.  The stamp I used was a Crafty Kids G17K Flourish.  Wish I had some turquoise glitter .. it would have looked spectacular.  But I must admit I do like this lovely blue against the black card.

So what do you think?  I'm not really big on glitter as I hate getting it all over my hands ... but it is staying on there pretty well :)

 Hard to see the background ... but its very pretty.

 Isn't she just gorgeous!  Can't wait to colour her in something different.

Here is a close up of the glitter ... it is very fine.  Its Martha Steward Glitter... quite nice.

I would like to enter this sparkly card into the following challenges:-
Flutter By Wednesdays - #170 Anything Goes
iCopic - #46 Glitter Challenge
Tiddly Inks - Goodbye Summer Hello Fall (yes I know weird choice ... but my interpretation is that this gorgeous fairy is waving her magic at night time to shake the leaves from their branches .... oh ok ... I just wanted Tiddly Inks to see my lovely card ... I'll admit it)
Digital Tuesday - #127 Fairy Wishes
