Sparkle and Bling at Christmas cards all year round

Good Morning to you! I trust you are well? Haven't we been lucky with the old weather? I even managed to get some sweet peas set yesterday and spend an hour at the park with the girls after school! How brilliant is that?

Today starts another new challenge over at christmas cards all year round. We didn't get many entires last month so I hope the theme of sparkle and bling will get a few more of you going this time around. Here's what I did:

Its a very simple card - I used the stamp from Indigo Blu and added versa mark then gold sparkle wow powders to my image and heat set. Then I added the red pearls and bow and sentiment - eh Voila!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
kaboodledoodles: Bling
divasbydesignchallenge : Anything goes
pennyschallenges: fave colour - red for me
simonsaysstampschallenge: AG
craftyribbonschallenge: AG with ribbon
craftyhazelnutschristmaschallenge2.: March anything goes

Thanks for dropping by and for any comments you may leave - I really do appreciate them all!

My running partner can't make today so I'll be doing an aerobics class instead - then its off to school this afternoon to plant some wild flower plugs with the children. If I'm lucky I'll get my peas in at home too! And get the hoovering done!

Big Hugs
