I'm not sure if my craft table will ever recover from all this glitter......but I'm ok with it! Love love love sparkle and shine! SSS knows this about us paper crafters so this week's challenge was a TON of FUN!! I finally got my SSS stitched butterflies in the mail so I promptly glittered them up to pop on my card. The inspiration for this card actually came from a pretty notepad I bought at TJ Maxx recently. I fell in love with the colors and the shine. I was going to copy the pretty glittered heart on it but I opted for the beautiful butterflies instead. Here is the notepad followed by my card.
I made the heart panel by stamping some hearts from the Essentials by Ellen stamp set Fancy Thanks in versamark ink. I heat embossed them and inked the entire panel with Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade distress inks.
I matted the heart panel on some glitter paper and heat embossed the butterflies with glittered embossing powder after inking them with Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade distress inks as well to match the panel. The gorgeous doily is from the Greeting Farm which I die cut from glitter paper like the background. I needed a happy birthday card so this sentiment from SSS Furry Cat and Box was the perfect size for the circle. So much sparkly goodness on this card I can hardly stand it!
Here is a close up of those sparkly butterflies.
Of course pictures never do justice to sparkle and shine.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great Friday!
I already am!
