Let's The Sparks Fly

A new challenge begins today at
The Sisterhood of Crafters and is being hosted by our lovely 'sistah' Darlene.
She has chosen the theme of
'Let The Sparks Fly'
meaning we want to see lots of  'sparkle' on your creations.

One of the things that brought this card to surface
was the small bit of scrap paper laying on my desk.
It was soft and pretty so I just went with building off of it.

After adhering the scrap down to my card base, 
I ran a strip of Sparkle N Sprinkle 1/4" Tear-ific Tape down one side
and burnished Golden Wheat glitter on.
This is a very fine glitter and one of my favorites as it is such a 'soft' color.

Next, I used Spellbinders Adorning Squares to stamp my image on.
The image is an  OLD SU (2000) stamp 'Stipple Butterfly'.
First time using for me, however I purchased this at a garage sale used.

I stamped first in Versamark,
then applied  'Hit The Beach'  embossing powder.
This embossing powder is interesting as not only does it have glitter in it,
but has a 'sheen' to it as well.
If you could see this IRL, you would notice it around the outside of the image.

To finish I stamped a sentiment (another oldie from SU)
first in Versamark, then heat set with Gold Detail embossing powder.

So head on over to The Sisterhood of Crafters and see all the
beautiful work by my 'sistahs' and join in with us!
