Sparkle and Shine ATC

It's been a while since I posted and since I entered the Wicked Wednesday ATC challenge.  It's good to be back!  The theme this time is "Make it Sparkle", and here's what I made:

I started with an ATC base made from an old cereal box, which I covered with patterned paper.  I then stamped and die cut the chandelier, and coloured the die cut with a very light off-white, just to soften it a little.  I went over the lights with pastel yellow 3D Pearl Effects, and the jewels on the chandelier with silver glitter glue.  The chandelier was getting lost against the background so I toned the background down with a little gesso and used foam pads to raise the chandelier.  I tried to create a warm glow from the lights with yellow ink on the background.  The words were stamped on white card; "shine" was also embossed in gold (although in hindsight maybe I should have used silver to match the rest of the ATC).  Glitter glue around "sparkle" and a couple of gems on "shine" finished everything off.
