Birthday butterfly

Good morning, time for a new challenge at Creative Moments, the optional theme this time is 'Bling it up' ...perfect for brightening up these dull dark November days! Our sponsors for this fortnight are

                                                               Art by Miran

                                                          My stitch back in twine
Although I still have loads of Christmas cards to make, I thought I'd have a little break and make a birthday card for this challenge, I was given a cute butterfly digi from My Stitch Back In Twine, which I printed, coloured the body and hearts, and fussy cut. I added stickles and gems then covered the wings in Wink of Stella, which of course doesn't show in the photo! You'll just have to take my word for it that they're lovely and sparkly!

I die cut several circles from bright pink cardstock and attached them to my hand cut fishtails using a bow and black sparkly brad. The sentiment is a Paper Smooches stamp. I added a few tiny gems to the flower centres of the backing DP.
We hope you'll join us at Creative Moments this fortnight, remember we're an 'anything goes' challenge - the theme is optional!
Thanks for dropping by!
