Tuesday Throwdown #95 - Sparkle!

The challenge over at the Tuesday Throwdown #95 is to "make it sparkle."
With all the bling I added here, I'd say this card sparkles :) I used Echo Park Springtime dsp to create the herringbone background, and then die cut with a SB labels 25 die. The butterfly is by Memory Box, and after die cutting, I lined it with matching dsp for some contrast. Sentiment is by SNSS, and the bling was from my stash. If you click on the photo, the colors may appear a little darker. This is pastel aqua blue, but photographed on a gray side.

Thanks for stopping by, and if you check in to see what I'm creating, you really are a blessing and this card's for you :)

What a wonderful herringbone card. Thanks for giving it to me. LOL I made a herringbone this week and it didn't turn out so pretty...went straight to the trash can. Ugh! Maybe I'll give it another try

What a gorgeous job you did on the labels piece. That b/g paper is so sweet, especially in the butterfly. Yes this one does qualify for the Sparkle requirement. Great job my friend.
