Blog hop....and candy!

It's our 3rd birthday over at the GlitternSparkle blog
and all the Design Team are all offering Blog Candy!

More details shortly, but first...
here's my card for this week.

I had been after this image for it! sooo retro!
I had a 3d viewer just like this, with "snow white" and "disney" reels!

The theme for our birthday bloghop is "add glitter n sparkle" 
(which is what i used)
add a charm.

Even though there is glitter n sparkle on this card, i think  it could
also work as a mans card - with the retro toy we all remember (a boy-toy!)

I coloured the image:
 with my promarkers, and added the white with
 a white, fine graph it marker.
I found some mega sparkly silver card for the backing, and 
a black and white "dovecraft" 6 x 6 paper for the very back.
I typed the words "love retro" on my clicky dynamo...
very 80's! lol. 
A couple of holographic spiral diecuts finished this card.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Creative knockouts - glitter it up - 30 Sept
Crafty gals corner - sparkle and glitter - 30 Sept
Crafty cardmakers - make it sparkle - 3 Oct
Passion for promarkers - boys will be boys  - 29 Sept

******* A couple of people have left comments that they weren't able to

A really fun card. Your 3D viewer image is fabulous, especially in the hot pink colour. The glitter card makes a lovely background and the tape sentiments fit the card perfectly Thanks for sharing with us at Crafty Cardmakers and more. Sally.x.

I think I already commented on your wonderful project, but I am not seeing my comment and my computer is giving me fits right who knows if the comment worked or not??? Anyway, I love the old Viewmaster on your card!!! So fun!!!

Google Friend Connect is not getting along with my computer, so I can't tell if I successfully joined your blog or not. I thought it had showed that I did, but now it has disappeared again. I signed up to subscribe by email, just in case. Hope that will count. Thank you for offering blog candy. I am in the USA, but some UKer will love what you are giving away!!!
