Wild Orchid Crafts - Make It Sparkle with Stars

So here's my card today for the Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge with a nice theme of Sparkle and Stars.  I thought it was a good chance to use the gorgeous German glass glitter and my sweet LOTV image.

This image is called "Little Holly" and can be found at the Lili of the Valley store! She has been colored with distress inks.

My papers are from a very sweet blogging friend and are by Pion Design! I thought they were a very pretty color. Thank you so much girlie, you are the best!

You can see the little stars I punched out and covered with German Glass Glitter and I also used the gorgeous new Lilies that Wild Orchid is now carrying.  A few of the other flowers I used are the Ivory Classic Sweet Rose, 15mm Ivory and Pale Pink Open roses, 10mm baby blue open roses, 25mm Ivory Wild rose, gypsophilia,  and Ivory Insertion Aglaise Lace. 
You can see I spritzed all the flowers with Pearl Glimmer Mist.
I am so used to using the metric system with Wild Orchid, but now US customers will see it also in the American System and US currency for prices! Yippee! No VAT Tax either! Wild Orchid Rocks!  They listen to their customers.

I hope you will join our challenge! This is an easy one.  Be sure to have a look at what all the DT have come up with.

Thanks again for coming by!

Hugs, Dena
