A Wish From The Heart

Hope everyone's been having a good weekend in all the lovely sunshine we have at the moment. I've just returned from visiting my parents in law and have a quick post to share a card I made at the last minute for the UK Stampers Stash Buster challenge to use glitter on your creation which ends at 12 midnight today.

The main part here is the blingy button heart which I made a while back for a project and it didn't fit so it's been sitting in my bits box since then and I decided to use it for the challenge. I had applied Diamond Glaze all over the painted heart to stick the buttons, pearls and jewels on and sprinkled pink glitter on to cover the remaining glue.
As it's quite busy, I made a simple card covered with paper embossed with a Tim Holtz Texture Fade folder and inked this with Spun Sugar and Milled Lavender Distress inks. I swiped Cotton Candy glitter glue over the top. The plain side was trimmed with the Martha Stewart arch lattice border punch and then swiped with VersaMark ink and embossed with clear powder with glitter added.
I finished off with text and a heart from a Tim Holtz sentiment. I cut these out as the whole thing was a little too large for the card.

I'd like to welcome Gail to my blog as my 200th follower and will soon be having a giveaway to celebrate as I was so excited to see I'd reached my second century today.
Thanks so much to everyone who follows and those that leave me such lovely comments.
