Oh Alice! - What makes you Shine or Sparkle?

`Why, what are YOUR shoes done with?' said the Gryphon. `I mean, what makes them so shiny?'

Alice looked down at them, and considered a little before she gave her answer. `They're done with blacking, I believe.'

`Boots and shoes under the sea,' the Gryphon went on in a deep voice, `are done with a whiting. Now you know.'

`And what are they made of?' Alice asked in a tone of great curiosity.

`Soles and eels, of course,' the Gryphon replied rather impatiently: `any shrimp could have told you that.'

`If I'd been the whiting,' said Alice, whose thoughts were still running on the song, `I'd have said to the porpoise, "Keep back, please: we don't want YOU with us!"'

`They were obliged to have him with them,' the Mock Turtle said: `no wise fish would go anywhere without a porpoise.'

`Wouldn't it really?' said Alice in a tone of great surprise.

 My card features the beautiful Charlotte with a Rose  I stamped her with Memento ink and coloured with Letraset promarkers, before adding some Sakura Stardust to make her sparkle, and a gem for her earring.  My papers came free with a magazine (love freebies).  I added lots of pearls and gems to create some sparkle, aswell as a grass border with ribbon and sequin flowers.
I stamped my sentiment and then punched out some circles from paper scraps to create my flower.

Thank you for stopping by, and have a great weekend all

What a wonderful card - I love this color palette. It's soothing without being too pale. You have so many lovely touches, but that flower is an eye popper! Beautiful coloring on Charlotte, too. Have a great weekend!
