Double D, Glitter

Good Morning!

A brand new Challenge is up and running over at the Double D Challenge Blog. 

Check out this Inspirational Tile!

All that Glitters is not gold.....sometimes it's PINK!!!
I started with a Spellbinders Captivating Squares die cut, which I doused with this beautiful Martha Stewart Glitter in Tourmaline....let me just say this color will come in super handy for making Christmas Ornaments for our little Penny-Poo!  :)  I added a Swiss Dots textured panel to the Spellbinders die cut, which makes for a lovely resting space for my glitter butterfly!

My butterfly is by Cheerylynn, Small Lace Butterfly.  I die cut the pretty image in White card stock and the backing from Adhesive Paper.  In this way I was able to layer the 2 pieces together and then sprinkle and burnish in my pretty glitters, I used; Amethyst, Kunzite and more of the Tourmaline.  The Adhesive Paper really holds onto the glitter....yay!
A few different angles so you can see all of that sparkle and shine!

I also popped up the butterfly for added dimension.

Sentiment stamped on a Vellum strip in Rose Red, and then Heat Embossed with Clear Powder, this helps with the smearing issue.  PTI, Happy For You stamp set.

Adhesive pearls and a little Heart Button for accents.
Please come on over to the Double D Blog and join in all of the FUN!  You'll be glad you did as there is always a pretty prize up for grabs!
