Glimmer Shimmer and Shine at Elisabeth Bell's World!

Wow, the year is just disappearing isn't it!! It's nearly November already!! I am busily getting ready for my son's 6th birthday which is next weekend and am actually a bit ahead with all my Dt cards so all is good with the world..hehehehe.. Not sure how long I can keep that up but I shall do my very best!! Especially as we get closer to Christmas!!
Anyway, it's the 25th of the month (well not here as we have already started the 26th - tehehehe) so time for a new challenge at Elisabeth Bell's World. We are sponsored by 7 Kids College Fund who sell Elisabeth Bell images from Whimsy Stamps and Belles n Whistles for this challenge so I used  an Elisabeth Bell's image from Whimsy Stamps. She is the super cute "Chloe".
Our challenge this month is to make something that Glimmers, Shimmers and Shines.. Not sure that the photo captures all of that but I definitely added it all! :) I coloured "Chloe" in with tria markers and cut her out!! I die cut the Summer Border and tied some ribbon and a button to it.. I cut out three squares of cardstock, the yellow being a sparkly cardstock!!. I embossed flowers onto the orange cardstock and went over them with blue kindyglitz!, I added rhinestones to the big flowers and some of the little flowers and then added the die cut clouds and dusted them with shimmer chalk!! I had no plan at all when I first started this but it turned out pretty cute I think!!
Please stop by the EBW challenge blog if you haven't already to see what the talented DT have created!!
