Glitter Galore

Hello to my crafting buddies. I hope you are all enjoying your weekend.

My card today is the result of experimenting with a new (to me) technique, 
using dies, D/sided tape and ultrafine glitter. I stumbled upon a youtube
tutorial by Els van de Burgt from Elizabeth Craft Designs.

A close-up look at the glittered die-cut.

A close-up of the greeting, which was on an A4 sheet that I bought many
years ago at one of the first ever craft shows I attended (in Esher, UK). I
coated the butterflies with Chrystallina Kindyglitz, then while they were
wet I sprinkled them with the same Ruby glitter as is on the flowers.

Inside the card with plenty of space on which I wrote a 
birthday message to my S.I.L.
