Butterfly Sparkle ...

This card was made using the Little Claire 'Butterfly' stamp.  I stamped the whole image and then coloured it and then just stamped the inside sections of each wing and coloured these.  Then I put some of the Little Claire Glitter Sparkle sheet over the top before cutting out each section.  These sections were then attached to the main image using foam pads.  It isn't easy to catch the sparkle on the card on camera but I hope you can see it!

I kept the finished card very simple - some blue card and four self adhesive gems.

Some challenges for this card:

Sweet Stampin Challenge - 'glitter, bling' sparkle, shine'
Fashionable Stamping Challenges - 'butterflies or bugs'
The Crafty Pad - 'New Year sparkle'
Charisma Cardz - 'clean and simple'
Moving Along With the Times - 'things with wings'

    Unfortunately some of the Sweet Stampin' DT girls have been unable to leave comments on your blog this week. The rest of the team have rallied round to try & make sure that everyone gets comments but it would be a tremendous help if you would consider the fix. Apparently this is due to blogger issues with an embedded comments box & the way to cure it it is to have a pop up box instead. If you need instructions on how to do this, please see here

    where Alison has provided a quick walk though, it's a simple process!

    Thank you so much & we appreciate you playing along with Sweet Stampin' xx
