Sparkle wishes

I always think I don't do a lot of sparkle, but then I look back on my work and think ... well, actually I do.  This is a little more sparkly than usual, but he is such a cute mouse and he deserves it!

I stamped the dark blue card and heat embossed it silver, then dry embossed a frame around it.  The mouse is coloured with Reno pens, then sprinkled with fine glitter; the balloon is coloured and sprinkled with bold glitter.  The diecut circle edge is dipped in versamark ink and embossed, with just some fine sprinkles of embossing powder to add a party feeling.  When dry I layered them over the diecut image for 3D effect.  Self adhesive glittery ribbon strips just to complete the picture and anchor it.

Oh, so cute! The embossed frame is so effective and I really like the crispness of the silver sentiment against the blue background. A fantastic little card. Thanks for sharing it with us over at Catch the Bug and good luck in the challenge!
