Sparkly Challenge DT Card

It[s time for another challenge! This fortnight's challenge on the Bee-Crafty blog has a 'sparkly' theme. Now, what girl doesn't like a bit of sparkle?!
I've used the Penguin Pair image (soo cute!) which is available to download from the blog here and made an easel card. I'm so in love with the Magnolia papers so have used the blue plaid patterned paper again and I've made some more handmade patterned paper using the waste of a punched XCut snowflake. The blue paper that I've matted it onto is, again, just an inked up piece of white paper (see last post for another sample).  Below is a picture of the card when folded flat..

and...ta daa! This is it once opened up. I'm a tad annoyed that the lack of daylight yesterday means the blinking sparkly bits I've added are not fully showing :o( I edged the my card and my punched snowflakes with stickles and sprayed with glimmer mist.

Rundown of Materials used:
XCut Snowflake Punch, Powder Blue Versamagic Chalk Inkpad, Papermania Ribbon, Baby Blue Glass Dew Drops, Stickles by Ranger, Blue Plaid Paper by Magnolia, Alphabet Clear Stamps by Doodlebug Inc, Sewing Machine, Polychromo Pencils blended with Sansador, 3d Sticky foam Pads, Threading Water Border Punch by Fiskars, Silver Candy Dots by Craftwork Cards

Right, I must get back to some cleaning :o( otherwise I'll never get out this afternoon! Oh, and dont forget to enter the challenge!
