CCAYR mid-month inspiration

It's already mid-month and an opportunity for the CCAYR design team to show some more inspiration for the August challenge with the theme Sparkle & Shine - simply create a card that has glitter, sparkle, gems, pearls etc.

This is my first mid-month design card using an offcut of silver mirror card that was embossed with the folder that came with my eBosser, with another offcut of some crinkled shiny card that I've had for ages, with a piece of glittered ribbon to cover the join. I used another snippet of the crinkled card to back the sentiment. The glittered baubles with gems were from Poundland from last year.

This is also for:
