Never Lose Your Sparkle



I couldn't resist creating this clean and simple card for the following two challenges: The Paper Players - CAS with butterflies - and Tag, You're It #45!  I die cut the tag (WPlus9's Timeless Tags 2) from Ranger watercolor CS, then picked up distress inks - Tumbled Glass and Cracked Pistachio - from an acrylic block to create the tag background.  On the card base, I used the same two inks and stamped off once to give it a lighter, more airy feel using WPlus9's Just Geometrics: Triangles stamp set.  The butterfly die is my new
fave by Concord and 9th: Floral and Flutter Dies.  I cut it from SU's Pool Party CS than added Martha Stewart's crystal fine glitter.  The sentiment banner is MFT's Stitched Fishtail Flags STAX Die-Namics with the sentiment stamp from WPlus9's Sparkle and Shine set.

That's it from me for now...Heading to the shower then off to work!  I'm enjoying this glorious spring weather we're having in VA!

Wanda, your tag/card is stunning; love that airy butterfly (which I recently ordered from Concord and 9th...excited for it to arrive!), made all the prettier with the sparkle! Your watercolour and stenciled background: lovely! So glad you joined us in the TYI gallery and honoured you drew inspiration from my tag/card to create this gem!
