Glitz 'n' Glamour

Hi, and welcome!

Right now, I feel as far away from Glitz and Glamour as I possibly could get......ferocious germs still have a hold on me......grrr.......but that's the challenge theme, this week, at Card Crafter's Circle ......think "A Day at the Races" with all the pretty dresses, high heels, glam make-up, and you'd be close to what we're looking for. You might want to use horse images, racing silks, champagne....anything that fits our theme.....oh, the choices....hahaaa!

Our generous sponsor is
Our randomly chosen winner will receive a lovely gift of $10 to spend in the'll be very spoilt for choice!

Here's my card......

Seems like you may have to wait a little while longer for decent photos.......another catastrophe in my crafty room......a wall of shelves decided to move itself to the floor, taking a ton of stuff with it.....and I'm really not feeling up to putting it all the photos were taken in the only clear space.....sorry!

I really don't have many images that could be used for this theme, and this cute stamp from Bugaboo was as close as I could get, lol.
She's coloured up with Promarkers and glittered with a Sakura pen.  I used a Nestie scalloped oval and layered onto pink glittered card and dark burgundy card.....those pretty flower gems have been sitting in my stash for the longest time........

The lovely damask paper was a freebie, and the sentiment is from Craftwork their stuff!

I cut 2 small and one larger pennant shapes from burgundy sequin waste and added a little string of shiny pearls to the top......

The little doily shape is from Memory Box and I rolled the three flowers from toning papers.....done.  I think I should have added something else to this, but, to be perfectly honest, I wasn't feeling at all well when I was making it, and this is it....hahaaaa!

I'm sure you could do much better, so come and join in the challenge!  Don't forget to take a look at what the rest of the Design Team have been up to....lots of  inspiration up for grabs!
