Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge 8

I am back today to share my inspiration for the latest challenge over at Craft Hoarders Anonymous.  Gloria is challenging us to  use metal or glass.
Do you hoard gears, pins, brads, eyelets, frames, and other metal do-dads? Do you have a thing for tiny light bulbs and glass vials? Do junk drawers make you giddy? Do you hang out in office supply stores so you can score funky paperclips? Do bottle caps make you swoon? Dig through your hoard to find something metal or glass (or both) and make a project to share!

Our sponsors for this challenge are Sin City Stamps and Really Reasonable Ribbon.


I decided to make a clean and simple card this time.  I used two shades of my favorite color pink to stamp the pretty butterfly from Sin City Stamps.  I stamped four flying up the card and two extras that I fussy cut out and popped up for added effect.  The ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I used several metal brads from Graphic 45 to embellish my bow and butterflies.  The sentiment is from Sin City Stamps as well.  I finished the card by rounding the corners and adding some clear Wink of Stella to the butterflies.  It is hard to get a good picture of the beautiful sparkle, but you can see it on the bottom butterfly.

Go check out the other creations that were made by the talented DT and the Sin City Stamps DT.
