Shimmer and shine!

Good morning! I'm back again with my DT card for Southern Girls Challenge. This fortnight our theme is 'Shine on'... so we would like to see your shining shimmery creations! Think of the fun  you can have with all those lovely glimmer sprays and mica paints! we have Three lovely sponsors Rhoda Design Studio, Flourish With a Bling and Marianne Design, all with fabulous prizes!.
My card is a fairly simple design, the ivy wreath is made using Marianne Creatables Die LR0206. The image is a Sweet Pea stamp, coloured with copics . I then used perfect pearls to give her wings and dress  some sheen, and the butterflies are stamped, coloured with copics and painted with perfect pearls to make them shimmer. The background paper has been sprayed with glimmer mist to add to the shimmery effect, unfortunately none of this shows very well in my photos, so you'll just have to take my word for it!:)
Thanks for visiting, don't forget to hop over to Southern Girls to see what my talented teamies have created to inspire you, - then get out all your lovely shimmery, shiny stuff, make something beautiful and join  in the fun!

I love the holly wreath, perfect card! Thank you for sharing your project with us @ Ooh La La :) Can I just ask you link to blog post with your card next time and not to your whole blog, as it makes it more difficult to find for us (even though you have some lovely projects on here!)
