Pile it On - Sparkle and Shine

This week at Pile it on we've gone all Sparkly and shiny!
So I've gone with stickles, gems and black glitter card!

Our lovely sponsor is Some Odd Girl!

This image is from a designer I've recently discovered called Redonkulous designs!

I've coloured with Prismacolour pencils and inked the edges of the image with Spun sugar distress ink to take the white glare off.
The paper is from dovecraft back to basics collection. 
I've used an aluminium plate effect embossing folder with black magic cardstock and distressed the raised areas so that the blue colour core shows through.
Ribbon, gems and brad from stash, and sentiment from Craftwork cards.

Hi Gemma, sorry I've not visited in a while, first I was poorly over Easter (yeah, great timing huh!) and then I've been away for a few days too with work. I'm back now and delighted to be visiting you again. I love your pink and black colour combo, I usually shy away from black, but it really makes a bold contrast to the baby pink here and looks great. Your colouring of the image is fab too, and her hair looks really funky!! Love it. Thanks for joining our spotty challenge at Top Tip Tuesday.
