Purple Sparkly Flower & Butterfly Card

Remember to enter my Who Made What? Weekends! Linky Party this weekend!


I made this card for 2 challenges.  Inspirational Card Sketches, Challenge # 98, and Glitterbabe's Challenge, Challenge # 28! I combined IC Sketches' sketch with Glitterbabe's sparkle theme:
Here's the sketch we had to work with:
So, again, I've chosen to go with purple...I just seem to have so much pretty purple stuff! :D
I used purple vellum paper for the background, and then a pretty flowery embossed paper for the right side:
For the left side, I used white card stock cut into squares, I smudged them with purple pencil shavings to colour them in, stamped a simple flower onto them and then embossed over the stamp too:
I also discovered that you can't use a hair dryer as a heating medium for embossing...it seems it ain't hot enough. Boo.  So I did it over the stove again!
I also inked the edges of the white paper:
To go with the sparkle theme, I added some blings around the card, butterflies to which I added blings as well, and a LOVE chip board word that I covered in glitter.  Oh, and the embossed flowery paper and my embossed flowers added some sparkle as well. :)
 And then to complete the design for the sketch, I added this to the bottom of the card:
I stamped a design onto white card stock and inked the edges, added some paper flowers and blings.
And that's my card! :D
