Allsorts challenge week 374 - A Touch of Sparkle


The lovely Tracy has chosen the theme for this week and it is -
A touch of sparkle - use glitter or gems.

Our sponsor this week is Scrappers Delight.


This is my take on the challenge.


Does not really show all the glitter and sparkle but I have used various shades of Glitter Glue.
Su backing card and sentiment punches
Tonic die - Top note Trellis
Corner edge punch
Sentiment computer generated.
Woodware stamp - Bubble bloom - Lynell.

Had a fabulous day last, Wednesday, went to meet Darnell and about 12 other fabulous card makers.

Lunch was at 12, mailed Darnell Tuesday night saying I would be there at 11, oh silly me, two accidents and road works, arrived at 12.30 but it was worth it.
Should have listened to Sally Traffic.
Took one hour to get home.

I will have even more sparkle in my life on Tuesday as my eldest Daughter is coming home from Sydney for a few weeks arrives on Tuesday, getting mega excited.

Such a shame we didn't figure out we were both at Knutsford sooner! I've got you beat on the getting home though... It was after 8.30pm by the time I rolled in, lol. Very much worth it for a lovely day out though.

Your card is beautiful. One of my favourite colours at the moment, and it's so lovely with the white die-cut. And I can sympathise with glitter not showing in photographs! x

Beautiful sparkly card Kath, love the blue. I think I have that die too, maybe I should use it and then I'll find out. Hope you have a fabulous visit.
Love Anne x
