Second design card for CCAYR August

This is my second 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.

The background is a piece of Hunkydory gold foiled card. The embossed square was cut from the Teresa Collins 'swirltangle' embossing folder that was run through my eBosser and then swiped with versamark before being heat embossed with Funstamps pearl plum embossing powder - this has a lovely almost iridescent sheen. The Anita's stamp was inked with memento grape jelly and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The flowers and gem brad are Panduro.
