Glittery Butterfly Birthday

Good Afternoon -
I thought I'd better post this card before I wrote in it and gave it to my daughter. Bad mother that I am, I didn't have it ready for her yesterday, and when I got home from my meeting this morning she sat down and visited with me in my stamp room - so I didn't work on it then. I knew what I wanted to do though.....

I learned this at our Team Meeting this past week from Trish Miles.....I took a piece of sticky "strip" paper, and gently scoring through only the top "red" piece of plastic......cut strips and added glitter one colour at a time. Then I put the entire piece through the Big Shot with the large Butterfly Die. Next, I took a smaller square of sticky paper, covered it with the purple glitter and was very please to find out that the Embosslits Die worked through the glitter. Of course you can't see the "embossing" on the tiny butterflies, but who needs to with all that glitter!!!!

I've used Friday Sketchers sketch, and the bow falls into the challenge this week from Our Creative Corner.

Needless to say, my stamp room and I are completely covered with glitter. Good thing (or bad thing) I'm going out on the town tonight. LOL. Hope there is a bit of glitter in your day - thanks for stopping by.
