It's great to be 8!

  The card I'm sharing today is for my little granddaughter who is excitedly anticipating her eighth birthday next week! It's a good fit for this week's challenge at Sweet Stampin' which is 'Sparkle and Shine' does have lots of sparkle (promise) although it doesn't show in the photo...the card isn't lopsided either...the camera DOES lie! :))
I chose this cute image (Polkadoodles) because of  her Ruby doesn't need to wear glasses...she's just obsessed by them and wears a pair of huge 'fake' ones whenever she can get away with it, kids do have strange ways sometimes! 
There's sparkle on the edges of die cuts, added with a glitter pen (Kaisercraft) and loads of Wink of Stella everywhere (Ruby loves a bit of sparkle!), her specs have glitter on the frames and glossy accents on the lens.
The sentiment is stamped n pink and then coloured with the glitter pen.

There are loads of splendidly sparkly creations from my lovely teamies to be enjoyed by clicking here, so please do hop over and take a peek...then it's your turn to dazzle us with your own beautiful glittery makes...just remember to stamp something.
Thanks for visiting and have a lovely weekend.
