Glitter Flutter-bys!

   Hello!  Rainy Wednesday morning here.  Makes me want to crawl back under the covers and settle in for the day, but it would be awfully tough to stamp from there so I am up! :)  I have a card to share with you today that I am kind of excited about.  It is a very simple card, but it has some of my favorite things on it.  Pink, flowers, glitter and butterflies...sheesh I sound like such a girlie-girl!  (I guess I kinda am!) LOL   The other reason that I am excited about this card is because it is going to be mailed to someone very dear to my {heart}...my mom!  Today's card:

Pink base, pretty flowers and glitter flutter-bys = a happy combination!  I stamped right on the base of the card and added the sentiment as the layer. I normally do this in the reverse order.  I also used a glass block to stamp a very light pattern underneath the flower image.  Ink up your glass block and use it like an actual stamp. Looks pretty darn cool!  I punched out the butterflies using a small Sizzex die and cut them out from the glitter paper (which I just love, love, love!). I wish it came in all the colors of the rainbow! LOL

Side view.

Close up of the glitter flutter-bys. I glued down the centers and left the wings popped up so it looks like they just landed on the card.

I faux stitched the sentiment in Pink Pirouette and ruffled up and sponged the edges with Chocolate Chip.

Recipe:
Stamps: Field Flowers
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Pink Pirouette, Chocolate Chip, Melon Mambo and Garden Green
Paper: Blushing Bride, Very Vanilla and Glitter paper
Extras: Butterflies Sizzlet die

Lots to do today, so I am off to conquer the world once again!  Hope you have a great day! See you soonest!
