Papertake Weekly...Shiny...Sparkly & Special

I can't believe where last week went and that it's time for another Papertake Weekly challenge!

Basically..we want to see something shiny or sparkly on your could be mirri card...glitter or gems...whatever you want to use to create something shiny or sparkly!

I had a real nightmare taking a photo of this card...I couldn't capture the glitter at all...not even after taking about 20 photos...I glittered up the flower and button too but I'm not sure really sure you can see it in the photo...this card is very sparkly and glittery in real life!

Hi Donna,
Your card is fab. The image is so cute and would be perfect for a new baby card! I love how you have created the sentiment and cannot believe you cut the circles by hand - they are perfect!
