Sparkle sparkle at Southern Girls


This fortnights challenge at Southern Girls is to Show us your Sparkle!!  

The challenge is being very generously sponsored by Pink Gem Designs and Delicious Doodles for Australia and New Zealand and Little Claire Designs for international entries
I used the Digi Lambretta image from Little Claire's, which I think is really fab and funky! Now you know I love my glitter and sparkle, so no worries you'd have thought, trouble was I went all blue and red, then worried that my card was too masculine for a bit of bling, but hey it's a bit 70's inspired which I seem to remember I've been told it was a decade of glam rock and therefore I think the blingy scooter is fine :-D

Anyway, here's my card

I promise there is bling on there!!  Darn camera, why do I have trouble in taking pics when there is lots of sparkle!!

There is sparkle on the flag, the footplate and the wheel arch, and glossy accents on the lights :-D  I found the rather fabby ribbon in John Lewis the other day, gems are from my stash, various Bazzill c/s and the blue circle is embossed with a Tim Holtz brick embossing folder

I decided to make a greeting into a little flag and attach it to the scooter with some craft wire, which I think looks pretty cool!!

Please may I enter these challenges
Fab n Funky - Something New (Ribbon, and the circle nesties)

Thanks for stopping by, hope you like my card :-D
