Pink Elephant Challenge 2

The Challenge at Pink Elephant this week was to use 'GLITTER' ... which, I have to tell you, is not something I find easy.
'Flitter' more describes what I have done with this card ... but hey ho ... it sparkles enough for me.

If you look carefully you'll see a 'hint of a tint' of pink glitter on the stamped flower, (isn't that Penny Black stamp just scrummy??), but I accidently dropped a humungous blob of fushia pink glitter on the green flower brad ... so I decided to be extravagant and leave it to set.
Must be getting brave in my old age.
Strangly enough I quite like the finished result ... sometimes things are just meant to be aren't they?
I added some adhesive gems for extra 'bling' and some 'faux stitching' ... and that was about all I could cope with.
Hope it fits the criteria for the PE Challenge but regardless, my niece loved her birthday card ... and, for me at least, that's what really counts.
The background paper was one of the lovely designs sent by Tiggertastic for my birthday and was just perfect for what I wanted.
The Penny Black stamp was coloured using Whisper Brush Markers.
More practice needed obviously but getting there I think.
