Glitter overload!!!

Hey there. It's the start of a new week and with it brings a new challenge over at Paper Cupcakes. This week, Patti P has whipped us a fabby sketch to work with and you know that's my favourite kinda challenge!! Here's my card:

I covered my card with Bazzill Basics grey coloured card and then used some new Prima papers. I've used the Paper Cupcakes image 'Cupcake under glass' coloured with promarkers with glossy accents on the dome. Then I added a Craftwork cards sentiment and then.............I went a bit kerazy with the Viva Decor Glitter pen!!! LOL!! It's looks nice and sparkly in real life!
I'm also going to enter my card into Aly's Sunday Challenge, which is 'Anything Goes', Card Cupids 'Anything Goes' challenge and Card Creations challenge # 4 'Anything that sparkles'. Hmmmm, d'you think it fits!?!
Right, I'd better go, I've got to go up to the hospital this afternoon and before that, I've got to go round to my mum and dad's to have a shower!! Last night, I went to give Sam a shower and I was turning the tap this way and that trying to get the right temp and although I was barely turning it, it was either burning hot or freezing, so in the end I said, 'just get out and I'll run you a bath'. Well, when I turned the taps on, it was literally a dribble. The taps have been playing up for a while - they only turn so far and then lock (any plumbers out there with advice!?!) I had to stand with two jugs and fill the bath from the sink which took an absolute age - not that it was a very deep bath!! So this morning, it's my turn and being I've got v long hair, I need the shower, so off to ma and pa's I go, shower gel in hand!!
Anyways, don't forget to check out the other girl's creations over at Paper Cupcakes, they've really outdone themselves this week - and if you want to take part, there's a gorgeous freebie to be had!!! (although you don't have to use a PC image to take part but we love to see how you use them!!) Bye for now..........xx
