All that glitters and sparkles
I came across this challenge over at Leearts. It's a very small world, Leanne lives in Karachi, Pakistan which is where I was born, my family migrated to Sydney, Australia about 27 years ago. My family are good friends with Leanne's inlaws and she knows my cousin Marie as well, I was pleasantly surprised about all this at first but then I realized we are all connected in someway.
I am including this card for a challenge over at Flashback Friday Challenges. This is an easy challenge as I wasn't required to make a card in a hurry. The challenge is to post the first card made with glitter. I don't often work with glitter mainly because it gets everywhere and when I was very young child I was making something out of glitter and made a huge mess. As my punishment I wasn't allowed to craft for a week which even at that age drove me mad and this has stuck in mind everytime I make something out of this shiny stuff.
I made this card for a glitter challenge and yes I did make a bit of a mess but it was worth it as I ended up winning the comp and got a nice prize for it as well. I ended up selling this card to a friend at work who gave it to his mum and she at first thought that he may have made it but then Daniel had to come out with the truth.
