New Challenge #74 at Glitter n Sparkle

Hi all,
Well this week has been a very sad one,
I've said my goodbyes to a wonderful Lady
who has meant so much to me.
I will miss my Grandma so much
but I know she will be with me
every day in my heart.

So here is my project for this week:-

The Theme at 
Glitter n Sparkle is:-
Add a Sentiment

Our Sponsors this week are:-

Patties Creations who are offering
2 Images from their store

The Stamping Chef who are offering
3 Images from their store

Digi Darla who are offering
5 Images from their store

Flourish With A Bling who are offering
an AUD $15 Gift Certificate for their store

My project for this week is:-

Princess Pumpkin Coach digi stamp 
from Patties Creations 
(one of our sponsors)

To begin with I made my base Card from
 A4 White Stock Card
which I folded in half.

Next I cut a rectangle 

(the same size as the front of the card)
from White Holographic Glitter Card
(Paper Cellar),
which I Die-Cut out the middle 
using the largest Rectangle Parenthesis #2

Next using Silver Holographic Glitter Card
(Paper Cellar)
I again Die-Cut the middle 
Using the Second Largest Rectangle Parenthesis #2.
Lining up the two to make a 'Window'.

I coloured in my Image 
using my Promarker Pens.
               Wheels -         Black
                                      Cool Grey 5
               Coach Body -  Cool Grey 2
               Shading -        Cool Grey 1

Then to make it sparkle I Heat Embossed it
               Black -            Front Wheel Spokes
                                     Coach Body
                                     Scroll work on Door
                                     Pumpkin Stalk
               Tinsel Silver - Coach Runners
                                     Window Sill
                                     Scroll under Coach
                                     Floating Scroll Work
                                     Pumpkin Top
                                     Wheel Centers
               Holographic -  Door Panel
                                     Coach Roof
(All from Papermania)
               Marcasile  -     Rear Wheel Spokes
                                      Middle Flourish around Door
(Opaque - Stamp-N Stuff)

Then I cut the image out
and placed it on to the White Base Card.

I added a Strip of Silver Glitter Ribbon to
each outside edge of the White Glitter Card.
Then with all three Layers completed
glued them together.

To add my sentiment I used a 

'Wedding' Clear Stamp
(All B Designs - Free from Crafts Beautiful)
which I used Watermark Stamp Ink

and Black Embossing Powder.

I then added Holographic Silver Glitter
(Glitter Magic)
To the curtains of the Coach.

And to make it all stand out
I glued 5mm White Holographic 
Flat-Backed Gems
around the Door and 
on the Bottom Door panel,
And 1 on the Centre of each Wheel.
For the Coach Body I placed in lines 
3mm Crystal Resin Flat-Backed Rhinestones,
And for the Curtain Ties I used
small Black Triangle Flat-Back Gems
(All Gems from my stash).
