Creative Card Crew - All that Sparkles

Oh we all love a little bit of sparkle don't we ? well that is exactly our challenge this week over at Creative Card Crew ' All that Sparkles' this week our sponser is ' The Crafty Pad ' who have put a lovely stamp up for grabs, so why not come on over and join in the fun ??????????
I decided to go for something different this week and make a little notebook, this one is 6" square. I used the lovely Mermaid Emma from CC designs and coloured her with my copics. For my sparkle I have glittered her body and tail with ultra fine glitter and put some stickles onto her pearls. I have used MME papers but have matted the image on some faux snakeskin paper that has a lovely pearlescent shimmer.

I have used my favourite QK swirls and some cherry blossoms, strands of pearls, tuille and some sparkly fibres, these were all from my stash.

To finish my book off I tied lots of ribbons and fibres to the metal rings that bind it together, I was really pleased with the effect, and so was my friend as she has ordered 7 from me for stocking fillers ! so that made it a very worthwhile project. I hope you have fun getting sparkled up this week, thanks for looking,
