Add some sparkle at Creative Craft Cottage

Good morning on this rather cold Thursday,

Here in the southern part of Africa we have been having lovely warm autumn weather, but we have had a rather rude awakening today to cold grey weather...I guess we knew winter would arrive, but not quite yet....anyway, here where we live on the Highveld, the cold should be shortlived as the days will start warming again soon and we are so lucky to usually have nice warm sunny days.

Onto the challenge for today. At Creative Craft Cottage the new challenge today calls for us to "add some sparkle".

We have 2 sponsors again this time and I have used an image from Lacy Sunshine stamps Ladybug Lyndsey Bugmees and you can find it HERE

This is what I used:

Paper from my stash. Red cardstock,
Punched the corners of a green patterned paper and matted onto the red.

Image is coloured with Distress inkpads and I used black Pontura pearlmakers for the black dots. Added glitter to the wings for my sparkle. Cut it out with a MFD die and matted this onto a black diecut.

Added red ribbon that has a sparkle design.

Sentiments were stamped onto the paper

Gems to finish.

I followed the April sketch from
Cheerful Sketches
