Sparkle Sparkle Everywhere

My Unity card today is all about the sparkle. I used glimmer paper from Paper Temptress, twinkling H2Os, and glitter.

I stamped the butterfly, from a set that must be retired because I can't find it, in versamark on velum cardstock, then embossed it with black EP.

I used twinkling H2Os to colour in the butterfly. I love the sparkle it gives. I don't think you can really see it, but it gives the image a really cool shimmer.

This image was cut out very close to the outside edge, and popped up with foam dots.

I also finally cracked open my glimmer cardstock for the card base, and for the sentiment. It also has a really great shimmer to it.

I stamped the sentiment from Spunky Princess in black Pallette ink, then punched it out with the scallop circle punch from SU.

I wanted to use stickles for the centres of these flowers, but I couldn't find my icicle stickles, so I used crystal effects, and dazzling diamonds to add just a little more bling.

Don't forget to comment on the post from yesterday for a chance to win your own Be the Change single. I will pick a winner from the comments on that post during Hip Hop on Thursday.
