Glitter and Sparkle

Back again already with my DT card for this week's challenge at Fab N Funky, sponsored by the fabulous AuroraWings the theme is glitter and sparkle. Time being precious right now, I used a gorgeous image (Spirit of Hibiscus) I was lucky enough to win some time ago and had already coloured.  My design is very simple, matted red and black cardstock , the black has a lovely shimmer, a circular aperture die cut through all the layers with the image peeking out. I added a couple of stamped hibiscus flowers, also coloured with copics and fussy cut. The die cut bow ( I'll always love this die!) is Memory Box. I went over the flowers very liberally with a Spectrum Noir clear sparkle pen (I know it doesn't show in the photo! :( gold stickles to the flower stamens.

you can see the sparkle a bit in this photo if you try hard!

This is the last Fab N Funky Challenge before Christmas, it would be lovely if you find the time to join us!
Thanks for visiting
