The Creative Cottage Challenge 3...Sparkle

Morning's very dull and overcast here this's been a funny old week so far...Sophie has had a couple of impromptu days off school as a pipe burst over the weekend and the school was flooded...she goes back today but it will be a bit weird as there are no carpets in school and a lot of the furniture has been removed...its been a bit difficult juggling work with her being at home but I think we've kept everyone happy lol!

We are on challenge 3 already over at The Creative Cottage and this weeks theme is SPARKLE! I've made an 18th birthday card for my niece and I've added glamour dust to the numbers and the ribbon has lots of sparkle running through it although you can't tell from the photo...I'm useless at photographing easel cards! The DT have created some gorgeous cards for this challenge so I hope you'll pop over and take a peek!
