Terrarium Birthday

Today I played along with the Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoaststampers.  My good friend Anne was the hostess and she had us looking at the World Markets web site.   I was inspired by a photo of several potted cactus and created this card:
I stamped the terrarium image onto white Strathmore Bristol Smooth Paper using Hero Arts Black Ink  Then I colored the image using Tombow Markers that I spread around using a Clear Glitter Wink of Stella Brush - which gives it a wonderful sparkle that hopefully you can see in the photo below. 
(if you can't see the glitter click on the photo to make it bigger!) 
I used a strip of washi tape behind the image that is popped up on foam dots.
The Birthday die is from Impression Obsession

My design was inspired by
 Wishing everyone a Happy, Healthy and Crafty New Year!
