Something a little different - Pixie Dust.

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.
I am finally back with a card and its something a little different.
I have being playing with something which gets your desk and hands very mucky but it is so much fun.
The product I have been using is Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Dust.
Basically you wet your cardstock by spraying water all over it and then you get your little bottles of Pixie Dust and sort of poof the powder out of the bottle or shake it over your card.
I then dried the wet card with my heat gun because I am impatient.
So here is the card which I am also entering into the following challenges:
1.Little Miss Muffet Challenge - 134 - Anything goes
2.Crafting From The Heart Challenge - 105 - Anything goes
