Polka Dots and Glitter-flys


This past week has been rather busy, and I usually spent Sunday afternoon's in the studio,  
After a later than usual lunch with guests, I decided to catch up on blogging instead.

This card was made for a seven year old girl - I had no indications as to her interests etc, so this is the result - lots of glitter and sparkle, over a bold background!

The main butterfly was the negative from a die cut using sparkle card, trimmed into a square, and backed with some bronze textured paper that has been in my stash since, errr,  lets just say years.
Some rhinestones were added to accentuate the body.

Other snippets of sparkle card were used to punch the small butterflies, and they also received rhinestone bodies. 

The sentiment was stamped onto a snippet of canary yellow card and copper embossed, then trimmed before the rhinestones were added to that.

The inside was finished with a butterfly stamp, to continue the theme.

And what little girl doesn't love a bit (or a lot) of sparkle? I am sure she will love it. It's lovely. Thanks for sharing with us at Digi Choosday this time. Hope to see you again soon.

Butterfly, sparkle and glitter, perfect recipe for a little girl. It reminds me of the episodes on Peppa Pig, when Mrs Gazelle doesn't want the kids to use glitter.. because then the whole world Glitters. This is a beautiful card Maxine, she'd love it.
