The Flower Challenge - #25 “Add sparkle” for our 2nd Birthday

Time flies! Not only is it October already, but it’s also our second birthday at The Flower Challenge and this month we want you to “Add Sparkle” to your creations.
Please head over there to join our celebrations, we have some fantastic prizes up for grabs this month too! Please make sure you check our rules to ensure that you're in the running for a prize and if you include our cue card in your post, we'll love you even more than we already do!
I used the latest members gift from Create and Craft which was a stamp set from Stamps By Me, to create my card. I stamped it in black archival ink and then totally stole our lovely leader, Aileen's idea to use my zig clean colour pens and use a tonic glitter pen, rather than a waterbrush to pull out the colour, giving a lovely sparkle to the image. I also used a gold glitter gel pen in the centre of the flowers to add some more sparkle.
To assemble the card I die cut a gold mirri frame using tattered lace torn edge rectangles and added a sentiment using The Paper Boutique's Sentiments Vol 2 die set in black card. I trimmed down the 5x7 card to give a roughly equal border around the frame. I fussy cut the floral image and then added it onto the card with 1mm deep foam tape. Simples.
