Thursday's glitter card

This is the card we made last Thursday. I used the colour coach to decide on my colour theme of Rose Red, Baja Breeze and Elegant Eggplant.
The sanded background stamp was used first and stamped in Rose Red ink. and then we layered up the Elegant Eggplant, Baja Breeze and Rose Red DSP from the paperstack. We used the scallop trim border punch along each side of the bottom card piece. A little fold of organza ribbon was added as an embellishment along with 2 large pearls.
The butterflies were stamped on the card in elegant Eggplant and then we stamped 2 more onto scrap card and then hand cut out to layer over the ones already stamped. (saves cutting out fiddly antennae. We then painted the butterflies in Chrystal effect which had a little dazzling diamonds powder mixed into it. This gives a subtle sparkle. A couple to tiny pearls were added to the ends of the antennae.
Now the butterflies come from a stamp set called strength and Hope. For each purchase of this stamp set Stampin' UP! will donate £1 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
