G is for Glitter ABC Challenge DT card

Good morning!
Sorry I haven't been around for the last week but I have been busy preparing for my hubby's 30th birthday which is on Saturday, so I am expecting a housefull of guests for the weekend.
Anyway I did manage to find time to create my DT card for this fortnights ABC Challenge. The theme this time is G is for Glitter, another nice easy theme to get stuck into. We are also being sponsored by the fabulous Simon Says so all the more reason to join in.

I chose to use the beautiful Chinese Tilda from the Bon Voyage collection. I teamed her with the equally beautiful Magnolia Tree paper which gave me the inspiration for my colour palette. Everything has been edged with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink and then plenty of Stardust Stickles has beed applied. I also sprayed the whole card liberally with Pearl Glimmer Mist to make sure that nothing went unglittered!
I am entering this in the following challenges:
Totally Gorjuss - Challenge 53 'Sparkle'
The Shabby Tea Room - #33 'Consider it Cased' (I chose to case Clare's wonderful colour palette of pink, duck egg blue and cream)
A Spoonfull of Sugar - #127 'Lets get Punchy' (I used nestabilities and a Sizzix Sizzlits die)
Creative Card Crew - Let's Punch It!
