Blue glitter everywhere!

On a blue kick today, for CASual Fridays Stamps' Blue Challenge.  
I have a few pots of glitter, but I avoid using it too much - I prefer stickles, as it's less messy. However, sometimes, the glitter comes out for a specific purpose (like this card), and I end up finding bits of glitter everywhere for weeks!
The loose glitter was necessary to get a glittery sentiment (on a vellum panel) on this birthday card - I used Stampin' Up Heat and Stick powder and Blue Siren glitter from Alison Ellis Design on the sentiment (from the "Shenanigans" set from CASual Fridays).  On the little flowers (which are actually from a Christmas set, "Christmas Carols" from CASual Fridays), I used Ballet Blue ink from Stampin' Up (why do they always discontinue my favourite colours? WHY?!), and then some sparkle embossing powder (also from Alison Ellis) in the centre with some white gel pen to finish them off. 

Thanks for visiting :)
