Choose Joy

Hello friends.  Playing along with a couple challenges that gave me the opportunity to use some of my new goodies.  Take a look:

The Challenge - #75  gave me the sketch to use for my card, so I started with a basic white card base and stenciled using Tim Holtz's Flourish with Picked Raspberry distress ink onto the left hand side of my card.  Next I added a doily that I die cut from a Cheery Lynne die (a gift from my dear friend Birgit!!) with vellum and embossed with just a touch of silver.  A strip of DSP over the top of the doily was added next and then used a new butterfly die (Gina Marie Designs) from some really pretty hot pink glitter cardstock.  My sentiment is from PTI's Choose Joy stamp set (LOVE this set!!) and then finished with a few sequins.  A pretty quick and simple card, but I really love the way it turned out!

Here's a closer up view of that sparkly butterfly and doily:

WOW! I really adore this card! The elements you combined look amazing together and the layout was really clever. I don't think I've ever seen a card quite like this and I stared at it, soaking in the details, for quite a while instead of doing the dishes. Totally worth it! I especially love how you incorporated the polka dot strip. Lovely, lovely work and I'm so glad you shared it with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
