Checking Out......for the last time!!!

Hi all and welcome to my little piece of craftiness......

So it's time to play again at "Through the Purple Haze" (TTPH) and this week the theme is Twine, Ribbon or Lace. The sponsor this week and sadly for the last time is the amazingly talented Tamara at "The Stamping Chef" who has decided to change slight direction and close her shop at the end of the year... These stamps are some of my personal favourites, I love things that are different and individual and these are, in such a talented and beautiful way..... If you have never been, please do pop over and grab a special stamp before it's too late....

Sooo,onto today's card... I have used the gorgeous "Checking Out" ....

and in this picture below, hopefully you can see all the gloss and sparkle... I used a clear wink of stella pen on the fluffy bits and the glass, a gold one above the eyes, ribbon, buckle, neck/wrist bands and shoe bows and a green one on the socks. I then used glossy accents on top of the glittered fluffy bits.......
