Scrappy Moms Stamps Terrific Tuesday Challenge - Sparkle and Shine (use something sparkly)

Happy Tuesday Crafters

Hope everyone is ready for the new Scrappy Moms Stamps Terrific Tuesday Challenge. 


Who doesn't love to add a little sparkle on your craft projects? 
For this challenge all you need to do is add something sparkle or shiny to your project and share it over at the Scrappy Moms Stamps blog

For my sparkle I embossed a butterfly and dragonfly stamp with silver embossing powder and I embossed the sentiment with black embossing powder.  
I also added some pearls to the dragonfly and black gemstones to my butterfly.  
For my sentiment I chose the beautiful Happy Birthday from 
the "From the Inside Out" stamp set. 

Here are my cards...

This one is the dragonfly.  
I love the how the silver embossing powder makes them all shiny and they just pop on the card.    Added a few silver pearls down their back to give them a little more dimension.  Also added dots using my silver gelly roll pen. 

Here is a close up of the dragonfly

Now to show you the card with the butterfly.
Similar design just slightly different.
