Cute Card Thursday #189 - DT Card

Hi girls. Thank you so much for dropping in on my blog today. I am so pleased to have you here and I hope you find something you like. How is your crafting going - well I hope.
It's Thursday again and time for the new Cute Card Thursday challenge where the theme this week is:-

Baby Your A Firework
(use glittery, sparkly, bright colours)

and the sponsor putting up a fabulous prize this week is The Stamps Shoppe so why not hop over and see the creations from the other DT Members and have a go yourself. 
The challenge title which I have used to create a sentiment comes from the Katy Perry song so I decided to put in as many fireworks as possible. The image is a photo of a fireworks display I downloaded from Google Images. I used black corners as picture mounts. The design paper is an unknown but I have covered it with a mas  of flower heads from an Artemio stamp and heat embossewd them with white embossing powder. I thought that the looked like firework bursts. I used oodles of glitter from my stash which you should see if you zoom in on the photograph. The ribbon is also from my stash.
Your comments on this card would be welcomed. I do so love reading what you have to say. If it's your first visit to my blog do leave a comment and then I will be able to link back to your blog and have a look at your work. Have a great day, enjoy your crafting and above all stay safe and healthy.
