Hi everyone, wow it's been a bit busy this week trying to get all my challenge cards  and a scrapbook project done as we are off  to Portsmouth tomorrow having just got back from Somerset on Monday!
The LIM challenge this week is to create "something shiny", although at first glance panic set in as I thought we were having a football theme ......aaaah! and over at MMM it is A Midsummer Night's Dream.
So I have combined the two and this is what I came up with:

It's difficult to photograph anything shiny or glittery so apologies if you can't see it!
I sponged Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade DI , stamped the fairy in grey versamark and embossed with clear EP. I stamped some Chapel Art ferns in the same DI and  added glitter from the wand and on her wings. Some dry embossed lines and a pearl in each corner finish it off. I have not added a sentiment as it's for one of my great nieces  and will have to have a few more embellies:)

Hopefully by now you will be thinking about joining in our first challenge at Addicted to Stamps, we'd love to see your cards and help us to make this challenge a success:)
Thanks for taking the time to visit me, I love to read your comments and visit your blogs.

Pretty card Val - love the colour way. Hope you had a good time with Charlie and that the 'men' (!!!) managed to get all the jobs done? Don't think I would lay odds on Jim getting up that early.......or did Charlie get a request for an early morning call? lol
