Butterfly Sparkles.. or not

It is raining out..lots, and a little chilly too which would be perfect for crafting if I did not need to work. Have to earn the money to pay for all my fabulous craft supplies though :).
I made this card while visiting with my sister last week, I found these pretty papers in her stash. She cut this cute little butterfly out with her Silhouette for me, the DP really showed its white core so I decided to use a little bit of Goosebump and sprinkle white glitter on top for the background to see what the effect would be and to pull the white from the paper in.
It did not quite work out as I expected and the while glitter did not really sparkle but with the darker tone of the DP I almost think it looks better without sparkle. I did add some gems for the body of the butterfly.
What do you think?
Supplies: White cardstock, Designer Paper – Ki, The Alley Way Stamps – Jibber Jabber, Goosebumps, glitter, ribbon,  gems

  1. I love it! The sparkle is subdued & looks like distressing - perfect :) It just started raining here (and hard!) and it's a lovely relief from the heat :)
