I quick little card to play with a couple of fun challenges, luv the sketch from sweet sunday sketch and the colors from colour me. I used the lil' inker stiched butterflies, colored with Zig markers and added gold glitter for a little shine. The sentiment is from lawn fawn and the sweet scalloped edge and curve are pretty pink posh border dies. Add a little glimmer to your life...sparkle & shine!
