CCT Time to Sparkle

This week on Cute Card Thursday it's Time to Sparkle! I have added lots of Stardust Stickles to my card, but as usual it's hard to get it showing up in my pictures.  The image is Feeding Robins by Lili of the Valley and I've coloured with my Copics.  I've added white gel pen to the snow and created extra little triple flakes on the background .. .. here's the card.

After I coloured the image I couldn't find pretty papers to match, so I've just embossed a piece of pearl paper with the CB snowflake folder and added the pretty satin ribbon that in real life is a match for the little lad's jacket and wellies.  For embellishments I've cut various shapes with Marianne Design dies and finished off with the Stardust Stickles and little pearls in the centres of the flowers.

These are the Marianne dies I used:
corners - LR0143
mini poinsettias - LR0142
fern fronds (twigs) - LR0245
pine fronds - LR0227

The Created with Love challenge blog have an anything goes theme this time, the Cutie Pies are playing bingo and I have a diagonal line with flowers, ribbon and glitter.

I have the last bit of grouting to do on the kitchen floor after waiting overnight for the last tiles to 'go off' - I must say it's looking good and makes the area look twice as big!  Our electrician neighbour is away this week so we will have to wait for him to come back and connect up the under-floor heating then it will be a luxury to stand and make breakfast in bare feet!
