AAA Cards Challenge #55 Glitter

Welcome to the first AAA Cards challenge of the New Year. Well I don't know about you but I'm about ready to take down the Christmas decorations and the last of my visiting family make their way back home tomorrow.  Just the long haul of cold January weather to look forward to!

So to keep your spirits up and tempt you out of hibernation AAA Cards would like to see some glitter on your cards. And there's a winner's prize - a $20 Stampendous gift certificate - definitely worth staying awake for!

As always glitter is so difficult to do justice to in photos you'll just have to trust me this card is well sparkly!

Both the background and butterfly stamps have a coat of wink of stella, the scalloped circle and pink butterfly are cut from glitter card and the sprinkle dot is glittered.

Here's a little close up that begins to show the sparkle:

Stamps:Papermania, Urban Stamps Travel; Uniko, English Country Garden Butterflies, Flower Power #2; SU, Gorgeous Grunge
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black; SU, wisteria wonder
Die: Uniko, Graphic Flowers Time
Punch: Martha Stewart, butterfly; Xcut, corner rounder
Embellishments: Doodlebug Sprinkles, love glitter asst.

Are you ready to kick start your 2016 creativity? Hoping to see your glittery creations pop up in our gallery! Go check out the rest of the DT creations - here - and then get busy.  Your card could be the lucky prize winner.
