CCAYR August challenge

This is my first design card for CCAYR August challenge: sparkle and glitter. Please click the link to see the wonderful crafting of the rest of the team and we would love to see you entering the challenge with your sparkle and glitter creations.

I love black, white and hot pink together, so I enjoyed making this card. The image is the lovely Inkadinkado reindeer inked with versafine black onyx and heat embossed with detail black embossing powder (I wish that the gloss of the embossing showed up on the photo). The  two lovely black organza flowers with the pearls centres were a prize from Flourish with a bling. The hot pink sparkly card is from one of my offcuts boxes. The Crafter's Companion Sentimentals stamp was likewise inked with the versafine and heat embossed with detail black. This and the image were mounted on to offcuts of silver mirror card.
