Comfort glittering!!

I know all about comfort eating, but is there such a thing as 'comfort glittering'?
I think so..
I don't know what happened with this card - it just doesn't seem to work for me.
So, I tried throwing glitter at it, but I'm still not feeling it!
Never mind - it's another one for the pile and I'm sure it will come in useful.

I followed the sketch over at the Penny Black Challenge.
I hasten to add that my not liking the card is NOT a problem with the sketch - 
you just have to check out the fab DT work over there to see that.
Once my card was layered up I added the hedgies,
coloured with Copics, a little glitter on the rose and some glossy accents on the balloon.
I stuck the card candy on with foam pads and then the sentiment (made on my comp),
and finally added the flowers.

I would also like to enter this for the Secret Crafter Challenge,
where the theme is 'Anything Goes'.
They have some fab, new manga stamps just arrived in their store,
so go and check them out.

When I stood back and looked at the card it wasn't quite right,
so I snipped off the wired pearls that were on the blooms and got busy with the glitter!

Stamp - Penny Black, Long Kiss

Hi Caroline,
Aaah I really like your card. It is strange when you are not quite happy with something that you can't quite put your finger on. Love the hedgies they are so cute.
Enjoy the rest of your days.
