Sassy Cheryl's 100th Challenge

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog has reached a milestone - 100 challenges - and I decided to join the party. I couldn't imagine a better image to use than Sassy Sally because she's already in the party mood.  The challenge there is Punches & Shimmer.  I know you can easily see the punches and trust me when I tell you there is also shimmer but no matter how hard I tried, I could not get it to come up in the photo so I have added some sparkle brushes to show where some of it is.  The pompom on the top of her head and all the confetti has been coloured with a Copper Gel Pen, the dots on her skirt have been coloured with an Iridescent Gel Pen and I added a Clear Gel Pen over the paper streamers.  In real life there are lots of shimmery spots.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
