Bling it on

Over at House Mouse & Friends they are celebrating their 100th Challenge. If you enter a card and follow the Blog Hop there are some incredible prizes up for grabs. The theme is  Buttons, Bows & Bling.
What a great excuse to get out all my glitters  :-)

I used this cute 'Tis the Season stamp (thanks Lols xxx), coloured with Copics and sprinkled liberally with glitter. If anyone has any tips for photographing glitter, please share... IRL this is much more sparkly. 
I've also chalked the background in blue, but that doesn't show up real well either.
