Little Miss Muffet - Sparkle

Good morning my crafty friends!  Today we are starting a new challenge over at Little Miss Muffet and it is one of my favorites, Sparkle.  I LOVE to make my cards and projects sparkle anytime I can.  In fact, I like sparkly, shiny things to begin with.  Okay, okay, I know, what girl doesn't, but I really do like things that shine, I just do!

For my project that I am sharing with you today I used the Little Miss Muffet image, Cadrian.  I've also found a new challenge to enter this week and it is at the Papertake Weekly Challenge Blog.  They have a sketch this week and I've used it on my project.  Now, I kind of got a LITTLE carried away with my embellishments, so it is not so easy to see that I followed the sketch, but I really did, really!

Here's the sketch that I followed.

And here's my project for this week.

Materials I Used for My Project:
Copic Markers - G17, YG67, YG63, YG61, G46, G43, G40, W3, W1, W0
Wild Orchid Flowers
EK Success Border Punch
SU Scalloped border punch
Magnolia Doohickey die
Spellbinder's Circle dies
MS Frond Punch
Crystal Stickles

Hmmm, okay, so maybe I did go a little overboard with my embellishments and my punches.  I guess I just really wanted my project to sparkle, ya know!  Well, here's my close up of my colored image.

I'm going to enter my project into a few other challenges as well.  The other challenges I'm entering it into are........

Well, that's it for my post for today.  Don't forget to check out the other great DT projects at the Little Miss Muffet challenge blog.  I hope you play along!
