Creative Belli Challenge #120

Happy Wednesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. It's time again for another Creative Belli Challenge. This one we are calling the letter "G".

Create a new project that features an embellishment that begins with the letter "G". Think about glitter, a gift card holder, a gift bag, Glimmer Mist, Old Glory (4th of July projects), green rhinestones, whatever you've got on hand.

The spirit of the Belli challenges is to encourage you to use your OLD and FORGOTTEN embellishments! Everyone is welcome to play along! Challenge a stamping friend!! All you have to do is follow the theme.

For my card I went with the "G" is for glitter idea. My card is one that we made at our last stamp club
meeting. My friend Linda came up with the idea for this card.  

We didn't use any glitter on the original so I cut a new butterfly image with a spellbinders butterfly die. I had some sticky pages in my stash and I covered the card stock with that and sprinkled with diamond dust glitter before I cut the butterfly.

I added a glittered brad to the center of my butterfly. I used the circles that came out of the butterfly after cutting on my card as well. I also used my Martha Stewart butterfly punch to cut 2 additional butterflies from the glittered card stock.
