Week 205 - Add some sparkle

Hello my fellow bloggers,
I hope that this finds you all well and happy now that the sun has finally started to shine. 

This week at Allsorts we have been asked to .................

I am sure that there isn't a crafter out there that cant fulfill this request!!

This is my offering for this challenge.

This is a closer photograph of the stamped image which has been embossed in black sparkle embossing powder from Creative Expressions.

and a close up of the Butterfly showing the sparkle

I started with an A5 size Centura Pearl card blank and popped a layer of black glitter card over the front.
The decorative edges have been made using a new Marianne die - it is gorgeous.
The butterfly has been made using another Marianne but this time it is a stamp and die and it really works perfectly.
The stamp in the middle of the card is from Let's Create's new Victorian stamp range and we are so pleased with the way that these have turned out.  We have 6 sets in the range and I cant wait to get stuck in and make lots of samples from them.

I have a busy weekend ahead on C and C guesting on the half price event shows on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.  There is a varied list of products from paper stash to storage and it is really worth having a peep at some of the shows - it certainly is May Mayhem!!

Whatever you choose to do I hope that you all enjoy a fabulous weekend.

Dont forget to pop over to the Allsorts Blog to check out my teamies great work and have a bash at the challenge too if you can keep out of the sunshine for long enough!!
Bye for now
Jo xx
