Bling, shimmer and glitter - Eureka Challenge #190

This is my design team entry for challenge #190 at Eureka Stamps - "add some bling" (Eureka Stamps blogspot.   I used the digi image Heart Bouquet. Originally I intended to use it for an anniversary card.   However, I recently learned that a friend from church is going to celebrate her 90th birthday, and I wanted to have a card ready for our quilting group to sign. Norma still drives, loves to play bridge, and quilted with us until recently. I colored with shiny metallic pens and chalk pencils. The letters are cut from pink glitter cs, the bg is shiny eggplant cs and I used shimmery champagne cs for the base. This cs looks great when embossed -  I used a Darice heart embossing folder.  There are shiny gems on the corners of the image panel.
