Sparkle and Shine

I am in my craft room today after a little time away.  I sure missed it, it is so therapeutic!  I wanted to make a sparkly card and that was the problem.  I have glitter everywhere, except on the butterfly.  I was pretty happy with the background, so I just stamped another butterfly and cut it out and then pasted it over the top of the really bad mistake.  I mean it was so bad!
This card will be entered in:
Mod Squad challenge, Birthday Sparkle and  
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge Anything Goes. 

 I sure had fun going through my old Stampin Up stamps.  I thought I should really get rid of some of them, but now, I am sure I will keep them.  You never know when you will need them.  Right.  Anyway, here are the stamps that I used.
Stampin UP  Swallowtail and flowers from Reason to Smile.  The leaves and swirls are from Ladybugs.
All are colored with Copic markers on a layer of Kraft card stock from PTI.  The base is Black Onyx from GKD. Then I put a layer of Wink of Stella all over the butterfly and flowers.  (it was a brand new wink)
Boy does it sparkle, wish you could see it.
Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. Greeting from Flowers and Frames, GKD

Thanks for stopping in, I hope that you enjoy!  I appreciate your kind comments.


  1. That is one gorgeous butterfly....love the colors. I like your pretty background too. It really is a lovely card!

  2. This is absolutely STUNNING. I mean STUNNING!!! I love everything about it. That butterfly is amazing, especially the bright yellow - looks like you colored it with gold. And I love the background too - everything just goes so well together. Just gorgeous!!!

  3. KEEP THEM......KEEP THEM ALL! ;) This is STUNNING! Love that big bold butterfly and hose fabulous gold accents, then the way you added the gold sequins 'randomly'......looks as if they flew right off the wings. I just LOVE everything about your creation. Sooooo BEAUTIFUL!!!

  4. This is one of the most beautiful cards I have ever seen. The butterfly is fabulous with the gold accents and how smart of you to cover up a mistake. I have tons of your cards on my inspiration pages and now I get to add another. Fabulous, my friend.

  5. That card is so gorgeous and I love the colors you used for the butterfly and the flowers. And, you are so good at hiding the boo boo.
