Stitches and Sparkles

This is a card I whipped out after I bought my new Copics! Yes, I broke down and bought some! I have 24 now, and I can see where they are an addiction! I need more! lol

So I colored this butterfly from the Stampin' Up set Winged Things with my Copics. I added some glitter to all the yellow parts on the wings. On the background I heat embossed the flourish from Stampin' Up set Doodle This, one of my all time favorite sets. After heat embossing I brayered it with a light yellow ink. I added the blue panels and then used my sewing machine to stitch the edges of them, popped up the image on the front, added some orange rhinestones from my stash and voila! A stitchy, sparkly card!

I added this card to the following challenges:

Allsorts Challenge - In stitches
ABC Challenge - S is for Sparkle
Crafty Pad - Stitching
Paper Sundaes - No People

I hope everyone enjoys their day! I will be visiting with friends and family today! Happy April Vacation!
