I have coloured my image with pencils as usual but have also gone over the pattern on her dress with a Sakura Stardust pen to add sparkle. This has then been layered onto glittery handmade paper using my Nesties. I have layered the sentiments in the same way. The strips behind the image is white satin ribbon with sparkly ric rac ribbon on top. I have made the flowers simply by using a large white paper flower and adding a punched pink sparkly flower tooped with a paper rose. The ones at the bottom have added recycled white leaves. The butterfly has also been punched from the pink sparkly paper with pearls added. The metal charm word 'celebrate' is a magazine freebie I have had for about 4 years and never used along with 3 other words. Maybe now that I have finally opened them I might actually put them onto something, who knows?
