Belli#82 Glitter Butterfly


The Creative Belli Challenge this week is to use glitter or rhinestones.
The CBC is always a fun challenge, because it involves using what you already have on hand in your stash!! Heaven knows we all have plenty of glitter and rhinestones!!
My butterfly and the BG is embossed using a glitter embossing powder in Egyptian Gold. Even the name is exotic!! The butterfly is popped up, and I added a gold metallic paper behind the panel and for an embellishment in the corner. No ribbon or brads here.....I didn't want to take any attention away from this gorgeous image.
Please join us in the CBC this week. Check out the blog and link your card or project here:http://www.bellichallenge.blogspot.com/. See what the DT has done, and if you upload to SCS, please put CBC in your keyword. See you in two weeks again!
