Sparkly Butterflies

Greetings to you all, I hope you are well.
Great news-my kitten (Frodo is his name!) is back to normal!! I took him to the vet after two days of him being not well and he had an infection in his gum after losing a tooth.  An antibiotic injection and lots of love has seen him return to his usual adorable mischievious self :)

With the recovery of my kitten, I have been able to craft again! I also ordered an easel using a voucher my brother got me at Christmas, so I will be painting again soon too!

Today sees a brand new challenge over at the Scribble & Scrap Challenge, and my DT inspiration piece is one I made using products I am stocking in my store (coming soon to cyber space-once I figure out how to do it!!).

It's a beautiful sparkly card-I love butterflies :)
I used:
Imagination Crafts: Butterfly Background Patterned card, Amethyst Sparkle Medium, Flutterby Stencil
The Hobby House Rhinestone Sparkler
Hunkydory sentiment
ribbon and silver card from my stash

I used the stencil and the sparkle medium to decorate the edges of the acetate before putting the card together.
I like the effect it gives, let me know what you think :)
Have a great day and, until next time, Happy Crafting xx
