Super Sparkly Flutterbys!


TGI Friday, Peeps! Are you ready for the weekend or is that a stupid question?!

This week has zoomed by far too fast for my liking and in the process I managed to forget my SIL's birthday! I really do feel awful, but for some stupid reason I was thinking that it was next week and not this week! Duh!

So cue my lightening-quick card-making skills, better late than never, right?! I inked up Butterfly Dreams and came up with this super-simple and super-flat, (only had small stamps for this little card on me at the time!) creation:

I was inspired to splash my flutterbys with colour after seeing this card by the super talented Maile Belles

Because I felt guilty about my forgetfulness, I wanted to add an extra something and went slightly crazy with the Glossy Accents and Ultra Fine Glitter :D

Slightly OTT but still makes me Ooooh and Ahhh when it sparkles in the daylight :D

Card Recipe
Mainly PTI Supplies
Stamps: Butterfly Dreams
Ink: Memento Black/Versamark
Cardstock: True Black/Raspberry Fizz
Accessories: Cuttlebug/Medium Scalloped Die/Judikins Glitter/White EP/White Gel Pen/Glossy Accents/Scor-Tape

Well I hope my SIL can forgive me! I have no excuse apart from I'm a bit of a doofus at times LOL!

Hope y'all have a wonderful weekend! No doubt I'll be finding traces of glitter everywhere for the next few days LOL!
