Grunged And Glittered

Hello everyone,

Another glittered butterfly card today.

The background is Stampin' Up Gorgeous Grunge stamped in Daffodil Delight, Marina Mist and Pear Pizzazz.  The butterfly is die cut from a piece of glossy paper that was inked with a variety of Ranger alcohol inks and die cut with Joy Crafts Vintage Flourishes 6003/0023.  The sentiment is Stampabilities Happy Birthday 01 stamped in Midnight Muse.  The embellishments are Crafts Rhinestones.

Like yesterday's card, the background I stamped on this card camouflages the butterfly as opposed to highlighting it.  Also, despite using a dark ink for the sentiment, the busy background rather swallows it up.  The embellishments add that necessary sparkle which doesn't come across in this photo.  This is another card that may well have to be reconstructed for it to work the way I'd like.  Again, not a bad card but it could be better.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
