Spread a smile.

Good morning all.
Another card from my reserves this morning, i had every intention of making a card last night but instead i was wading through paperwork looking for my hubbys original contract from over 10 years ago.
To cut a long story short, although he has worked for different security firms, he has never signed a new contract apart from the very first one as that had the best sickness benefits.He has never had to claim it before and now he needs to because of his op, they can`t find a copy of his contract to verify it in his records!!!!
Ah well here is my card which i am entering into the following challenges:
1.Totally Papercrafts Challenge - Challenge 192 - Use glitter
2.Paper Playtime Challenge - Challenge 23 - Sparkle
3.Inky Impressions Challenge - Challenge 134 - Red and Green

Products used are:
White card
WRS papers
Dstress tool
Dovecraft pearls
Dovecraft sentiment
Hobbyhouse roses
Hobbyhouse precoloured KK image
Stickles - Stardust

Close up of the image, hopefully you can see the sparkle on this one better.

 And a sideways view.
Thanks so much for looking, it means a lot ;D
Hugs Nic.xx
