Red and White cards

I'm still managing to keep crafting so here are the latest efforts from my desk.
At Tiddly Inks this week they want an all white card except for the image, I found this really hard, I kept wanting to add colour to things so I settled on this design, after I found an embossed card in a drawer that I was tidying up. I coloured the image with my promarkers and used glue and Glamour Dust for the sparkles. I have taken countless photographs to try to show the sparkle but I can't get it right, more practise required I think. I even used the glue freehand to write the message which got sparkled as well.

For this one I used my new stamp Tweet Heart from Whiff of Joy coloured with my promarkers, cut some shapes using my dies, embossed the panel, used some of my dwindling papermania heart pad which I've had for ages and added some sparkle with the Glamour Dust again.
I used a Bazzil Bling template for the letter U but had to do the number myself as I don't have one with numbers on it. I was really pleased with this one it just seemed to fall together and it looks so much redder in real life but it is red I promise not pink.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Thanks so very much for popping by and I would be thrilled to read any comments you are kind enough to leave.
