Frosted Designs with glitz

I'm so looking forward to this long Easter weekend! Don't care if the weather is bad because it'll be lovely to have a couple of extra days away from work....and I may even get some extra crafting in too! Bliss!
Today I have my DT card for Frosted Designs, and this week is a colour challenge of
Phew!!! The pink on this card is HOT, HOT, HOT!
I'm also going to enter it into:
Crafts and Me - their first challenge is Fairies or Wings (I have wings) (( Big Wave to Gina!!))
Sweet Pea Stampers - their first challenge is all that glistens is gold (Glistening gold glamour dust)
Incy Wincy - Stitching (this is faux stitching). For anyone interested...they are running a design team call at the moment.
Cooking it up with Katie - Something Old (the satin ribbon) Something New (the cuttlebug folder and the maidenhair leaf punch) and Something Sweet (Sweet Pea image)
Simon Says Stamp - It's so distressing (Distressed the raised areas on the cuttlebug embossing with Black Soot. Used distress inks to colour. Distressed the edges with distress ink)

I have a couple of new items on this card. The fab cuttlebug folder and the Leone Em Maidenhair leaf punch. I love them both.
The image is a Sweet Pea one and it is glittered up to the nines with glamour dust. Couldn't quite pick it all out in the photos though but it is there one the swirls, the bodice, the necklace and around the edge.
Items Used:
Image: Ching-Chou Kuik - Red Hearts
Hot pink, Lime Green and Black card stock from the Papermill
Victoria Cuttlebug folder
Distress Inks: Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint, Old Paper, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick, Black Soot, Walnut Stain
Glamour Dust
Hobby Craft Roses and flower punch,
Leone Em Maidenhair leaf punch
Satin Ribbon

Thanks for looking,
Sharon xx
