The Flower Challenge #72 reminder

 

A quick reminder to get your sparkle on at The Flower Challenge, my friends!

I have tons of sparkly foiled backgrounds made from the leftovers in my stash!  One of them came in handy for another way to add sparkle to your cards!

Queen Anne's Lace is the perfect attraction for a Swallowtail butterfly this time of year!  This die might be one of the first dies I ever purchased 
from Memory Box c. 2013

See that flutterby peek-a-booing?

My Concord & 9th sentiment was created using the die to foil and the shadow die to cut!

  Fun, right?


We're loving the sparkle in our gallery - you have time to make a few more!

  1. I love the Swallowtail in the background and that beautiful Queen Anne's Lace! Lots of sparkle and shine! We did finally have quite a few Swallowtails but I think they've moved on now and we're seeing more Sulphurs.

  7. Beautiful way to use the negative foiling, Michele. That blue is gorgeous and the white die cuts really pop off it.

  8. Nearly missed this one! What a great way to use foil. I love how your background is covered and you kept it simple on the sentiment. Great choice of die cut too and sticking to white with the foil was the best idea xx

  11. I could have sworn I commented on this but I'm a little befuddled from lack of sleep. Better now. The foil background is amazing with its somewhat holographic effect and such a pretty blue. Striking with the white. The butterfly is amazing and I love seeing the oldie Queen Anne's Lace in the mix.

  12. Oh I love the design of this gorgeous card, Michele! The white Swallowtail butterfly outlines, and the white Queen Anne's Lace die-cut are so beautiful against the dreamy foiled background. 
    I've never used a die to foil. You inspired me to try that. Thank you!
