Hello Friend

Good evening. I'm back again with a card to share this time lol!! I took inspiration from the following challenges for this card:
Less is More - Butterflies
Simon Says Stamp - Sparkle & Shine
Paper Play - Sparkle Galore
Flutterby Wednesday - Open Theme - to include butterfly, fairy or angel

I stamped the gorgeous butterfly image into Angelina Fibres sandwiched between some Fantasy Film using Black Archival ink and an iron.

Basically you sandwich some of the Angelina Fibres between a top and bottom layer of Fantasy Film and then ink up the stamp (works best with rubber stamps) with a permanent ink. Place the sandwich on top of the stamp and then place a piece of greaseproof paper (or parchment or non-stick telfon mat) on top of that and iron over the top with a dry hot iron - just until you see the image coming through the paper - too much and you will lose the sparkle effect.

Here's a close up of the finished effect:

This also used:

Co-ordinating glitter card with Martha Stewart butterfly border punched edge.
Black adhesive pearls.
Sentiment - Whimsey Stamps - stamped and heat embossed then piunched out with Stampin' Up word window punch.

Thanks for popping by.

Only 3 more sleeps until I can get my first snuggle with my gorgeous new Grand-Daughter!

Have a fab evening.
