Orange Birthday Butterflies

I got a couple of challenges completed Tuesday evening...

Midnight Madness Sketch
Clean And Simple #64 from Splitcoast - Orange Birthday Card
Simon Says - Things with Wings

After stamping the swirls from "Priceless" I drew a thin line of glue with Tombow Glue and added orange microbeads from the Stampin'Up! Orange Duo. Just got lucky with the flash from the camera for this extra sparkley effect. Microbeads were also used to create the bodies of the butterflies.

Here's hoping there's something sparkley in your life. Thanks for stopping by!
