All That Glitters!

I have a card to show you all today that I had to make last minute although it ended up taking hours because I got the silly idea to make a sunburst!

I haven't had the chance to catch a Retro Sketch Challenge lately so I thought I would see what this weeks one was. I liked the sketch so I decided to use it to make the card I had to give out today.

Here is this weeks Retro Sketches sketch.
Here is my take on the sketch and as you can see it VERY GLITTERY and those of you that know me would say it's very me!
This is the first time I have made a sunburst from bits of paper, I liked the effect but it took so long to cut and then to assemble I'm not sure I will be doing it for a card again.

Some glitter punched hearts and a smattering of sequins and I pronounced it finished.
The challenge #65 at Retro Sketches runs until 31st May, so you still have a couple of days to enter a card using their great sketch.
It was a Bank Holiday here in the UK yesterday we were treated to some glorious weather, so doors were flung open and the garden was given some TLC and our cats were making the most of it by sunbathing.
I thought I would leave you with this photo of one of our cats who is at his cutest when he sleeps.
Of course the British weather being as unpredictable as it usually is decided to pour with rain today!
Hope you are having a sunny day.
