Make it Sparkle at Divas by Design

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.
Hope the sun is shining wherever you are - it is here and it always make me feel so much happier :o)

Super quick post this morning as my squidgilicious Grandson Oliver is here to play and today we have some new puzzles to make.

So this week over at 

it is the turn of Team B to share their inspiration on the theme


I had a request from a friend to make her friend a card for her 40th birthday but she wanted it to have something to do with Australia as that is where she would be when she was celebrating it.
So here's what I came up with:

I found this map of Australia on the internet and thought it would be perfect for the background. 
I also thought this adorable image from LOTV looked a little bit like a Koala bear lol!!!!
Anyway my friend loved it - and I'm happy to report that her friend loved it too - phew!!!!

Card Ingredients:
Image: LOTV 'Patchwork Daisy'
Colouring Medium: Copics
Numbers: Tim Holtz 'Word Play' Die - Made to Sparkle with Platinum Stickles
Adhesive Pearls from stash
Sentiment: Stampin Up

Please pop over to the main challenge blog to check out the awesome inspiration from my lovely DT buddies and to see the details of the fabulous prize on offer from our sponsor this week

I'll be back again very shortly with another DT post to share with you.
