Card for Sammi's Blog Candy + Two Challenges...

This card was made for Sammi's blog candy challenge to "make a 'Celebration' card which includes the colour purple and some form of sparkles".
Well, I hope you can see that I've included some purple (!), but ~ as usual ~ it's hard to capture sparkles on camera. They are there, though! The parcels have some Stickles on, as does the icing on the cupcake.. the rosebuds and the insect wings have been painted with glitter glue.

The card layout is based on Laura's sketch #6 from last week on the 2Sketches4You challenge blog. More evidence that I'm having trouble keeping up with the card challenges at the moment!

Ooh!! Have just realised that this also qualifies for this week's Penny Black Saturday Challenge, to create a card using ribbon, with at least one Penny Black rubberstamp!! :o)

Most of the materials used will be easily recognised, but if you would like to know about any of the items, please feel free to ask in a comment or by email.
