Tilda's gone all Glitz and Gold!!

Well another two weeks has rushed on by and that means another new challenge over at the Totally Tilda Challenge Blog.  Thank you for all your fabulous Icy Christmas (Blue and Silver) creations on our last challenge - I never realised that blue and silver could look soooo different!!  Remember to stop by the Totally Tilda blog and see if you were amongst our winners!

So, without further ado, onto our next challenge - which is, as the title may suggest, "GLITZ AND GOLD".  So this is your chance to get out all that fabulous glitter and bling it up big style.  Remember our only Rule is that you must use Tilda on your creation - you can use other images too such as Edwin etc but Tilda must be the main feature!  So that's the pep talk out of the way - time to move on to the fun bit!
Here is my card for this challenge:
This image is one that I was sent by one of my fabulous Tilda loving friends - I have so many images and stamps now that I think I can officially be classed as "ADDICTED" LOL.  The die cut (available at Die Cut Dreams) is edged with gold glitter.
The image is coloured in with promarkers and I have added gold glittery highlights.  I used my quickie glue pen and gold glitter to do this as the stickles doesn't flow that well! 
The DP is from a DCWV paper pad called Once Upon a Time and I chose it 'cos it had gold glitter on it!!  The pine cone glittery ribbon was purchased from the NEC and is available at Crafty Ribbons.  The large flowers (which I cut in half) were from my stash as were the roses.  I sprayed the flowers and roses with Spray and Sparkle but I'm not entirely happy with them as I think they look a bit grubby!  The sentiment is a die cut from my stash.
So I hope you like my card and remember to visit the rest of the Totally Tilda DT and have a look at their fabulous creations too!!  Thanks for stopping by and have fun!
