Make It Sparkle @ Diva's

Morning lovely peeps, hope you're all well. My is this year flying by or what? 2 days left in February, I can hardly believe it! (mind you I am scheduling this post so maybe I'm getting ahead of myself LOL).  I should be living in a building site as the work was due to start Monday, I'll keep you updated as and when anything exciting happens!

Today I'm here with a new challenge at


and this week Rebekah wants us to 

Make It Sparkle

Well not that you can really tell from this picture but my card does sparkle quite a bit, mind you its not the same colour in real life as this photograph. It was a dull old day when I took it maybe I should retake it?
The papers are from a First Edition pad Noir Et Chic and they are sparkly, they are also much creamier in colour than they look here,  I glamour dusted the wings of this uber cute Sugar Nellie fairy Pippi Longsocks I think she's called. The little black 18 is also glitter, its actually a peel off LOL long time since I used one of them.

We have a fabulous new sponsor who I was lucky to meet on holiday
 last year (hello Mark and Mel did you miss me this year? lol)

Please pop over and check out their store they have lots of gorgeous stash including the First Edition paper pads and the super shimmery organza ribbon I've used.
When your all shopped out there pop over to Diva's challenge blog to check out all the sparkly inspiration from my teammies this week, you might need your sunglasses to catch the glare!

That's it from me I hope to be back with a little extra make I intend on sneaking in that I'm making just for fun, a rare but pleasurable occurrence lol

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges...
