Hero Arts Sparkle and Shine Challenge with a July 4th flair

I wanted to add sparkle and shine to my card and celebrate the USA's July 4th.  Unfortunately, you cannot see the Stickles smeared across the blue stripes of the larges star in this photo.  Even a second try doesn't help.

The round dots are all Nuvo Midhnight Blue pops of shine..  I thought a bike would throw a bit of old fashioned fun into the mix.  The bike is cut from a Cola can, so the tin is very shiny.  I guess that this could be a cool masculine card, looking at the boy's bike.

Have fun with the A2Z Scrapbooking theme of "Sparkle and Shine" this month and let your creations sparkle and shine.

Close-up, but not much sparkle.  I added Crystal stickles on top of the blue and it sparkles quite well in real life, sadly, not so much in the picture.

I do have one additional photo and it's my new storage solution for all (ALL) my stickles and some re-inkers.  You can fit 20 Stickles in this case and some re-inkers will fit double, just not my Distress re-inkers.  But I can fit 10 of those and can SEE them without picking them up one at a time.  Yeah for me.  I am in an organizing mood and on my next post, I'll be showing you how I store my distress ink sponges.
