Sparkles n Glitter

Two of my favourite things to put on a card, but this time around it's the name of the gorgeous Bestie digi stamp I have used.
I may have mentioned last week how much I love these images, so much so that I have had to keep away from the store this week as I have had to curb my spending for a few days, and if I went over there I'm sure another dozen or so images would probably jump into my shopping cart LOL! Luckily I was one of the runners up in the last challenge and got to pick myself 2 digi's as my prize, so at least I got a little fix. of Bestie lusciousness.

I thought I would enter the challenge again this week and the theme is Ribbons, so I decided to colour up  the Sparkles n Glitter digi image (how cute is that seahorse?) and use ribbon to make..............
 some little ribbon fishes (ha! bet you didn't see that coming did you?). I had seen a digi version of them on a scrap booking site earlier in the week and immediately thought I could make them in 'real life', so I did.

Digital Stamp - Sparkles n Glitter Bestie - Sherri Baldy - Coloured in Photoshop
Background - Couture Creations embossing folder - Drink Me (thought it looked like bubbles in the water)
Splash with computer generated wording - Pool Party Scrap kit - Just so Scrappy
Shells - Marianne Creatables - Sea shells
Ribbons and black pearls - Meiflower

As they are called Sparkles n Glitter, I thought they should, so added glamour dust to the mermaids fringe and tail spots and also to the little seahorses hair and tail.

The ribbon fish were made by making a small version of the breast cancer ribbon and then tying it together with some narrower ribbon where they cross, and trimming the ends to make the tail.

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges.
