Spring Sparkle

Welcome

Spring is in the air, and there was a new die to try and a card to make, and this is the result.


The background was made by cutting a couple of cloud shapes and sponging around them randomly with blue ink on some white pearlised card.


The sentiment was gold embossed - here you can see some of the shimmer of the pearlised card.


To keep up the sparkle, after the flower had been cut and sponged, and the die removed, Kindy Glitz was added.


The butterfly was cut twice, and the green vellum layer embossed.


Some wee red bows and rhinestones on the butterfly body and flight path finished the card. 
I tried to catch the sheen in this last photo, but it was not particularly successful.
