Second card for CCAYR mid-month inspiration

This is my second design card for the CCAYR design team mid-month inspiration for the August challenge with the theme Sparkle & Shine - simply create a card that has glitter, sparkle, gems, pearls etc.

I decided to make this an almost one layer card by stamping directly on to the card blank using an Anna Griffin stamp inked with memento tuxedo black. The glittered purple card is an offcut. Ribbon is Papermania and the purple spacers are Prima.

This is also for:
