Add A Little Sparkle To Your Life!

Morning lovely peeps & a very happy Sunday to you!
Today's my Birthday! Yay me!!!!

I need to have a look see & sort out a little Birthday Candy, so watch this space!

I'm so excited as we have the carpet fitter coming to fit the hall carpet today!

Todays post is a card for the 
Crafty Pad Challenge this weeks theme, chosen by the lovely Pauline is
 #198 Add Some Glitter
Here's my creation!

I had a lot of fun making this one! I'm finally beginning to unearth some of 
my bits & pieces that have been stored in boxes for the last few months!

For the base card, I used kraft card-stock from Southfield Stationers
The DP's are from my stash & I have no idea where they are from
I may have got them in a goodie bag or in a blog candy, who knows!
The bauble paper is glittered but I'm not sure you can see it in the photo!

I coloured it up with Flexmarkers the cut out with an oval Nestie.
I added some Diamond Sparkles Glitter. I then matted the image
I added a greeting which I printed out  & matted on to the green paper.

The magic mesh was from a crafty goodie bag.
I used some twine & added some little bells. from Meiflower

I decorated the inside of the card,  using the green paper with the negative cut out of the
scalloped circle die & some white paper behind. I then added some DP scraps.
Thanks for stopping by to check out my creation!
