lots of sparkle

I had a request for a large easel christening card, with only one days notice so i used my trusty LOTV image as i didnt have time to search through stamps for an alternative image. i worked on it until almost 11.00pm (and i had an early start at work the next morning) but it was all worth it when i was well received, i took the photos last night when i had finished as i didnt have time to wait until daylight, you always get a better sparkle at night but lots of shadows, during the day you get a crisp image but loose the sparkle. The picture was taken on the iPhone so its captured the sparkle but the image isnt as good quality as i prefer.

The papers are by first edition and have been distressed with walnut stain then edged in gold stickles, the image was coloured with distress inks, i will link it with some challenges when ive had a browse to see where it will fit.

Im linking it to Simon says stamp bit o green

Crazy for challenges - green
Im not sure ill have a card for to show you tomorrow as ive got an early start again in the morning so i may have an early night so that means no crafting :(

Next week there are some new release stamps at Lili of the valley so i had better save some of my pennies so i dont miss out on them
