Make It Sparkle

Good morning to you! Hope your weekend has got off to a great start. Have you anything nice planned?  We went out with some friends last night so I have a bit of a wine head this morning lol! A  nice and easy weekend and I hope to fit some crafty time in too!

Over at Card Makin' Mamas we have a new challenge for the next fortnight and the theme is Make It Sparkle.  Here is my card:

I have used a stunning image which I was given by our sponsor this week.  The image is called Oriental Poppy by

Aurora Wings have some gorgeous images please go check them out here.  The lucky winner will win $10 of images of their choice - wish I could enter!  I coloured the image with Copics and added a sentiment by Inkylicious.  The paper is Nitwits Petal Pixies.  I used lots of Stickles around the edge of the image, ribbon from my stash and the sparkler is from The Hobby House.  Here is another view:
