I know my card doesn't look very sparkly but my dp is sparkly but this didn't photo well. I have also used a shimmer brad, adhesive pearls and added stickles to the dragons flower. I have also used this fabulous sketch which was created by Kristine over at Friday Sketchers.

Hope you are all having a great Sunday!
