All that glitters and shines

I'm working on cards this week! 
One of my peeps at work asked me to make her some cards... 
What's a better way to get better at something I feel I struggle at?? 
This is a Saturated Canary digi from the super talented Krista Smith
This week over at the saturated canary challenge blog the theme is bling!
So I brought it! 
This is "circus trixie" and I colored her using my copics and prismacolor alcohol based markers.
I added some glossy accents to the bow around her tummy, glitter to her hair, and the red along the outside of the spellbinders die cut is painted using red glitter paint.
I added rhinestones along the blue star paper on the side, and red glitter glue to the star in the corner.
I also added stitching to the sides, and the red ric rac (say that 4 times fast!) to the bottom... Finally I finished it off with a button strung with twine on the side!  
I certainly hope my friend loves this card! 

Entering into:
Saturated Canary: bling
CPS (#272): sketch
delightful challenges: primary colours
Dilly beans: fabrics and fibers
Fab n funky: stars and stripes
Shopping our stash: triple threat (used rhinestones, doily, die cut, and ribbon)
Scrap bitz copic challenge: Big Hair Challenge
Cupcake challenges: bright as a button

WOW that fits into a lot of categories!
