Bright & Sparkly

Good afternoon. Brrrr it's really cold here today - so have had to turn the heating up a notch or two!!! 
I didn't get chance to ink up any of my new stamps from the NEC yesterday - went to see Jamie & Rowena in their new home - they bought it in August - completely gutted it and transformed it spectacularly and moved in this week - it's stunning!!!

So I was itching to have a play this morning and this is what I have come up with:

I took inspiration from this week's Lili of the Valley challenge - 'Bright & Sparkly'
and the new sketch at Sketch n Stash

I have used the gorgeous new 'Icy Angel' and coloured her with my new Flex Markers & PM's
I added lots of sparkle using a Quickie Glue pen and Glamour Dust to her wings.

I coloured some plain white seam binding - using Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to co-ordinate.
The wooden snowflake embellishment was also a treat from the NEC and I inked it with Perfect Medium then added some Stamp n Bond - heated it then sprinkled with Glamour Dust and added an adhesive pearl to the centre.

Challenges I would like to enter:

LOTV - Bright & Sparkly
Sketch n Stash - Sketch #74
Crafty Catz - Anything Goes
Winter Wonderland - Make it Sparkle

Thanks for popping by.
Have a fabulous - keep warm :-)
