A little bit of sparkle

I love how this card has worked out! I've had a set of Craftwork Card flowers for ages but just couldn't see how to give them dimension and create beautiful flowers like I see on other peoples cards. Also I'm not a very floral person but I decided to have a go with a little help from Google. After watching a very short video by the Craftwork Cards team it all became clear and I'm loving the result. I may even add some flowers to more future projects :)

This card is for a horse lover and after I coloured the beautiful digi from Silvia at Wee stamps I thought I'd add some extra bling. I used three different Hunkydory glitters- parma violet for the hair, blush pink for the flowers and angel whispers for the lines.  

Paper - Craftwork Cards & matted on Core-dinations
