Sparkle and Shine---- and 'Spots n Dots' for Tag Along

Its been a few weeks since I have entered the Speed Craft Challenge.
Challenge 11 is, 'Sparkle and Shine'. !5 minutes  soon fly over and I have learnt that it is better to have a plan in you head and everything you need close by and ready to go.
So on the left is my starter pile and the time.
Base card coloured with Distress ink and a bit of random stamping.
Main image embossed with  Silver Sparkle Wow powder.
It does sparkle in real life.
I did end in the time, but had to stick to bow down again, when I was trying to get a better photo.

This is  the Tag I also made today for 
Tag Along Challenge.
Its No 73 and the theme is Spots n Dots

This was fun to make, using  stencils,  stamps  and paint .

Thank you for taking the time to stop by, the comments you leave  for me are always appreciated.
