Purple grey and silver Sweet Pea

I haven't posted a Sweet Pea card for a while, I'm totally addicted to these gorgeous stamps though so I'm back with a very sparkly card for the challenge over at Sweet Pea Stampers where the theme is 'Glitz and Glamour'

The bp is from Graphicus, stamped with a large Elusive images border stamp, embossed with silver sparkle EP. The edges fo the bp have been distressed and embossed with the same EP and dots of stickles added at the corners. The sentiment is also a stamp from Eluisve images.

The main image is 'Coral Immersion' from ching chou kuik, shecoloured with promarkers and to add some glitz and glamour I used Stickums powder to emboss lines through her hair and on the chalked background. Once I'd heated the stickums powder I brushed over some mica powders in silver and purple. I love the effect although its difficult to see in the pic.

I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:
Charisma Cardz: No embellishments
Ellephantastic: Distressing + love
Little Claire's: Anything goes
Oldie but Goodie: Fairy/mermaid/magical beings (not sure how long i've had the sweet pea stamp but I've had the Elusive images border stamp for years)
Paperplay: Stamp it Out
Phindy's Place: embossing

Thanks for calling by today. I hope you're having a good start to the week. Its blowing a gale here today, I'm sat in my little office having my lunch and it sounds like the roof is going to blow away lol. Its a really old building so when the weather is like this it creaks and groans like nobody's business. Anyway I'd better get back to work while we've still got a roof :-)
