All that Glitters - Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge, !

Morning all. Hope you're all enjoying your weekend! I went out to a 50th Birthday party last night and didn't get in unitl 2am this morning so feeling a little under the weather! :-)

Well I've been playing with my Miss Anya's again for this challenge card. I am entering it into this weeks secret crafter saturday challenge which is to use 'glitter' on your project!

I coloured my image with my distress inks before adding glossy accents to the headband and shoes. I wanted to give her some patent shoes! Although I don't think you can see it very well in this picture! I have also given her some glittery pink eyeshadow, which you can see if you click on the picture! I have cut her out, embossed and framed with curved rectangle nestabilities. DP is from the DCWV christmas stack. CS is cordedinations and DCWV. Glittered brads are from making memories. The sentiment is a rubber stamp I got from Stamp Magic craft fair last year, don't know the make sorry! Pink adhesive gems are papermania. Flowers are from prima and the glittery pink flowers are from the Candy I won from Bev!

I followed the sketch over on Stampin chic this week, but I don't have any of CCSR so I can't enter it into the challenge, I still enjoyed using the sketch though!

Well I don't have many plans for today. I suppose I should do some of that dreaded word HouseWork!! But there's some football on TV this afternoon so I should gets some time to retreat to my craft room! I'm also going to have a visit to all your lovely blogs and see what you've been creating!

Thanks for taking the time to visit me and leave such lovely coments, I really appreciate it!

Hugs, Vicky
