Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge - Glitz & Glamour

I can't believe that we are almost at the end of the month and that it's already time for another challenge over at Sweet Pea Stampers. This fortnight the theme is Glitz and Glamour and boy have the DT gone to town, you should stop by and checkout their fantastic creations! Talking of DT's we're going to have a DT call very soon, full details will be posted on the Sweet Pea Stampers Blog, so make sure you keep an eye out for it. Also, don't forget our fantastic followers candy which closes on 31/1. Oh and I almost forgot the challenge prize this time is for a grab bag of Sweet Pea stamps supplied by the lovely Lynnette over at Sweet Pea Stamps.

Anyway, onto my card - it's kinda bold and bright so grab your sunnies and be prepared!

I've used ching-chou kuiks Fly Butterfly for this card. The image has been stamped onto white card and coloured with Promarkers and given a mix of Stickles for a bit of glitz. I made the image background from a piece of "Caught in Crystal" that had gone slightly wrong (the paper peeled away from the acetate and left me with a pliable film). The backing paper is a piece of caught in crystal acetate (unfortunately you can't see all the inclusions and pearlescent shimmers). I've added some die cut photo corners to finish.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Oldie but a Goodie - Fairies, Mermaids, Dragons or any other mythical beings
Passion for Promarkers - Let it shine
Kaboodle Doodles - Bling It Up
The Crafty Pad - Girly
Gingerloft - Things that fly
Let's Ink It Up - Anything Goes
Crafty Emma's - Angels & Fairies
Wags 'n' Whiskers - Angels & Fairies
