Plum sparklers

This card is for the recipe on Penny Black 132: 3 papers, 1 ribbon, 1 charm - and I used the PB stamp 'sparklers'.

This is also for Colour create 60: plum and white, where this inspirational picture was given:

The papers are BG wisteria and euphoria, the ribbon is Papermania; the charm was originally silver, but I swiped it with Brilliance pearlescent crimson to match the inking of the sparklers stamp, heat embossing both with clear powder.

Not a good photo, but it does show the embossing a bit better:

and a close up of the altered charm:
