Make it sparkle!

Good morning! Where has January gone??? Only 2 more days to go, then it's February (only a short month) then March...and hopefully signs of spring! I know I shouldn't wish time away but I'm fed up with winter and being cold even though it has been a mild winter here so far!
Here's my DT card for the new challenge over at Southern Girls... the theme is 'Sparkle' and it's sponsored by Concetta Designs, there are some fantastic images available in her Etsy Shop.
I used a cute stamp, part of a set by Mo Manning. The little fairy is coloured with copics, glitter added to her wings and a touch of glossy accents to the ladybirds. Random papers from bottomless 'scraps' drawer. I added a little die cut banner and pretty corners and some flowers (with a touch of glitter). The smallest flowers are e cut and rolled (very fiddly!!! but cute!).
I promise this card looks a lot more sparkly IRL!
We'd love to have you join us this fortnight, so dig out the glitter and sparkly stuff and get creating!
Please click here to be transported to sunnier climes where you're sure to be inspired by the wonderful work of Team Trace!
There is also a DT call at the moment you can check that out here.
Have a great day
