March Gina K CSS hop - sparkles

Hallo,
  Welcome to this months Gina K CSS Alumni blog hop - our theme this time is 'Simplicity Sparkles' to make a clean and simple card and use only embellishments that sparkle.
  Make sure to leave some comments along the way because we will be drawing one random commenter to win a grab bag of Gina K design products!!!!
   If you are following along the hop then you came to me from the very sweet and talented Miesje  http://miesdf.blogspot.com/2013/03/css-simplicity-sparkles-blog-hop-3-26.html  and I am sure she had some great eye candy!!
Also part of the challenge for this time we are using sets from releases from September 2012 through Februrary 2013.
I chose the 'Beyond Baskets' set combined with the older 'Holiday Baskets' set. I did a small bit of masking and then colored with copics. I cut the image out with a Spellbinders die and used an out-of-the-box technique and then edged it with a gold mettalic pen.
  I colored over the top of the flowers with yellow glitter pen and then added more glitter with some clear stickles.
  In 2 of the corners I added some gold pearl drops with a touch of stickles over the top after they dried for some sparkle.
  Next I send you on to the very talented Vicki  http://allidoisstamp.blogspot.com/2013/03/stv-css-hop.html where I am sure she has some great sparkle for you too!!!
   I am at work again tonight and then have 3 days off!!!! Yippee!!!
        Take Care
            Tera
