Bling on the Old - Challenge!

Don't you just LOVE the title of this challenge! It was created by Cammie who issued the 6th Challenge for the Papertrey Peeps! The idea is to use an older (perhaps less loved - wouldn't that be sad?) stamp set, and add shimmer, shine, glint and sparkle to it!

Well, my stamps aren't THAT old.... because I've only been Papertreying (is that a real verb?) since November. But these stamps weren't from the last release, so I'm sure they're almost acceptable :0)


I stamped some old Fancy Pants butterflies behind the Papertrey Butterfly and used some crystal glitter to highlight it .... a strip of scor-tape across the middle layer of ribbon also has crystal glitter shimmering across it .... and even the buttons are threaded with irridescent cord - heeee :0)


Materials: Cardstock, Ink, Buttons, Butterfly & Flower Border Stamps; Solid Ribbon - Papertrey Ink; Silhouette Butterfly Stamp - Fancy Pants; Sentiment Stamp - Melissa Frances; Punch Fiskars; Rhinestones - Kaiser; Polka Dot Ribbon - Michaels

Some stickles on the butterfly image and rhinestone accents wherever they could fit in, complete the sparkle and shine!

I kept the rest of the card fairly simple (ie - white) to try and cope with it all :0)

Now to find a fairly young, very girly person in need of a card!! LOL!!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a totally wonderful day - I hope that something in it is full of joy, happy sparkle, and shine for you!
