Pink birthday card

Today's card is going to fit into a few challenges, which is great.  I had originally made it to enter the OSAAT DT call but have just checked their blog this morning to see that the DT call is now closed, oops!!!  Typical me - always leaving stuff until last minute!  I still love the digi image, which is from Stitchy Bear Stamps.

This picture shows up my glitter and sparkle - I'm always happiest with a little tube of glitter in my hand!  I've also used a Sakura crystal gel pen on the petals to add a subtle shimmer, which you can just about see.  The edges of the paper have been lightly distressed with scissors and edged with glitter.

Here's what I've used:
Image - from Stitchy Bear Stamps, coloured with pro markers
Cosmic shimmer crystal glitter
My new Nellie Sneden scallop frame die
Paper - my new Henbury Lane pad from Papermania
everything else from stash

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Pollycraft - Ribbon and bling
Passion for pro markers - pink birthday
Sketch and Stash - I've used their sketch below.  My newest item is the die cut and papers, the neglected item is the white flower brad.

Lastly, I would just like to say a big "Hello and welcome to my blog" to my newest followers: Nina, Farrah, Susie and Silk on glass.  I really appreciate the comments left by all of my followers and hope that my blog can help with the odd bit of crafty inspiration.  I do try and visit my followers blogs, if I've missed you out leave me a comment with your blog URL so I can pop by!
