All that Glitters!

I found this piece of glittery dp in with some paper that I received in a swap and I fell in love.  I think I could become addicted to gliitery dp. lol  Today's card is also for someone special who is recovering from major surgery, so please keep her in prayer too.

The butterfly antennae are made from wire that I colored with alcohol ink. I added some touches of Stickles to the butterfly.  The background papers and parts of the butterfly that looks black are a rich brown IRL.

I'm entering my card in these challenges:
Flutterby Wednesday - Anything goes - must have butterfly, fairy or angel.
Christmas Stampin' All Year Long - Other than Christmas
Wild Orchid - Make It Sparkle
Stampin' for the Weekend - Anything Goes
Paper Cutz - Use metal

  • My doctor gave me two free inhalers.
  • Our friend, Lloyd, who was in the bad accident last year, is able to do some farming again.
  • My hubby got over $17 worth of cereal for $2!!!  And it's healthy stuff too.  What a guy! :)
Have a terrific day!!!

Inky hugs!

Good point, though sometimes it's hard to arrive to definite conclusions
