Birthday Card

Hello Friends! I hope everyone had an enjoyable weekend. Today I am sharing a birthday card I made for my mom. Today is her birthday, but we ambushed her on Sunday and spoiled her a little bit!

I used the triple time stamping technique on this one. It's a really easy technique to do, but it makes quite an impression.

There is so much sparkle and glitter on this, but of course the camera doesn't pick it up. The little butterflies are covered in crystal glitter. I have had the crystal glitter for some time, but just recently started using it regularly. It's a clear glitter, no iridescence at all, so it doesn't change the color of the object that is glittered. It just adds loads of sparkle! I finished off the card with several blasts of shimmer spray.
