Charisma cardz #34–DT card

Good morning dear friends.  Well another week is flying by and I can’t believe it’s Thursday already – where did the rest of the week go?  I hope your week has been fantastic, mine’s been ok, although I don’t seem to have achieved very much lol! 

It’s time for a brand new challenge over at charisma cardz challenge and it’s team Gem’s turn to share their cards.  Our theme this week is “glitter it” so I’m sure we’ll lots of gorgeous entries to drool over!  Here is my card:

I have used a super cute stamp from CC designs called ‘cupcake Birgitta’ and I added stickles to her cupcakes and a sakura glaze pen to her wings.  I also used gorgeous glittery paper from first editions from the ‘summer breeze’ paper pad and my flower has glitter in the centre.  The flower was a gift from my cupcake teamie Donna and the beautiful lace is a recent purchase from wild orchid crafts

We have two sponsors this week, firstly we have our regular sponsor DigiStamp Boutique and the lovely Sally-Ann is offering 6 digi images of the winner’s choice.

Hi Denise,
This card is adorable. I love this image. I have a couple of these stamps, but not this one, it's lovely. I also have these papers, they are just lovely, I used the brown version on my last card. Have a great Thursday. Debbiexx
