Sparkle & Shine

I'm entering today's card in the Sparkle and Shine challenge.  I heard about this challenge through the Winnie and Walter blog, they're providing a 25.00 prize to the winner! 

I've been loving gold lately and I wanted to use up the last bits of kraft and gold paper that were included in the Simon Says Stamp April kit.  That, and the sketch provided for the challenge, were the inspiration for my card.

To start my card, I used some Cracked Pistachio distress ink on watercolor paper, doing some acetate smooshing.  I used PTI dies to cut the butterflies from the kraft and gold paper.  The strip of paper with the circles punched out was done with an MFT sequin die (I used the sequins on another card that I posted yesterday).  A strip of washi tape and a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp finish the card.  I added a few drops of Heidi Swapp gold spray, and some Pretty Pink Posh clear sequins to really make this card "sparkle and shine" :)

I love bling, so this card was super fun to make!
