Sparkle, Sparkle in My Card!

This card was made for several challenges including one that required sparkle so I wanted the sparkle to really shine in the photo which is often hard to do. In order to have a lot of sparkle that could be seen,  I glittered a strip of White shimmery CS with  a lot of crystal glitter to make sure I had that shine come across.  I also used Glitter DP and used a Sakura Clear Star pen to add shimmer to the swan and trees in the image and the sentiment.(Can you see that?)  I think this card shines bright with enough sparkle!

I used a sketch from Crazy 4 Challenge and colors from The Play Date Cafe challenge in designing my card.
Stamps: Mark Finest Papers "Floating Along" stamp set that I won during the recent release.
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Summer Sky, Rich Cocoa; SU Turquoise
Copics: B0000, G20
Paper: DCWV Citrus Matstack-this is a Glitter DP
           Yellow, Orange, White CS
Sakura Clear Star Pen, Ultra Fine Crystal Glitter

Speedy the Cat's Friends: Make it sparkle.
The Play Date Cafe: Colors shown on graphic below.
Crazy 4 Challenges:  Sketch challenge shown below.
One Stop Challenge: Get Well Soon...that is the exact sentiment that I used.
Sweet Stamping Challenge: Use something old, something new.  The stamps that I used are new and first time I used. The old is DCWV DP and glitter that I have had for sometime. Hardly ever use glitter.
