Sparkle & Shine Challenge #24

It's the 15th of the month and that means it's time for a new challenge at Sparkle & Shine!  Our sponsor for this challenge is Right at Home.  The winner of the challenge will receive a $15.00 gift card to their store!

I have to admit that this image stumped me a bit when I first saw it.  You could pull certain colors, or all the colors, go with the chevron pattern, or a combination of any of these.  In the end I decided to just look for a colorful chevron pattern in my paper stash.

I wanted the chevron pattern to take center stage, so I decide to die cut this large butterfly from PTI using the paper.  I also cut a solid butterfly out of black glitter paper and place it underneath, slightly offset.  You might be able to see the glitter in the paper just a tiny bit but it was hard to capture it in my photo.  The word "sending" is also cut from black glitter paper, using a die from Simon Says Stamp.  The "you smiles" sentiment is from the SSS Sending & Wishing stamp set.  I used a Simon Says Stamp border die to cut the bottom of my white card stock panel, and the very bottom of the card is colored with Worn Lipstick distress ink and splattered with some water droplets.  I do love how this card turned out, big, bold designs like this are my favorite!

I hope you'll play along with us at Sparkle & Shine, and be sure to check out what the other design team members have created, their cards are sure to inspire!
