Saturday Sketchers, Basic Grey (Mellow) & Daring Cardmakers Challenges

I managed three challenges in one with this card, which is good as Basic Grey and Daring Cardmakers both wanted the dreaded glitter on their cards.
I usually just manage to glitter myself and the Chester (my cat) and he doesn't seem to care. I didn't have any glitter with me but Gesa (my son's girlfriend) said she had some at her mother's house and as we were going there to eat she suggested I 'glittered' there. It ended up all over my face and the kitchen - everyone laughed and thought it was funny, but we all know what glitter is like, I have visions of them going to work today covered with green glitter.
Eeek - how embarrasing!!
I used the Sketch Saturday layout and Basic Grey papers Mellow and glittered the flowers and leaves. I watercolour the image and highlighted it with Stickles (much more Heather-friendly) and finished off with a peel-off sentiment which again I glittered. I'm having problems with sentiments here in Germany - the only available computer is at Paul's work and I'm not sure about putting German sentiments on my cards.

This is beautiful and all that glittery saga was well worth it. The BG you used is one of my favourites. Hugs. Desire

Love that stamp - you always make such gorgeous cards with it. uh uh another on my wish list. Your blog should be censored AND that link you put to Elaine's blog has just cost me too - I just had to invest in some of that clip art and that led to me buying a Joanna Sheen messy rabbit to use with the clip art and it's all your fault.
