Such a cute image Shell, and your coloring is wonderful. It is hard to photographic sparkle. I had to giggle a bit at the number of attempts you made before you got it (I've done that too). It was worth it though as it really adds to the whole card.

So happy to be with the rest of the DT for March. Thanks for having me as a GDT. Hugs D
