A little Glitz and Glam

Here I am checking in with a card for the Holiday Vacation Challenge #10.  OWH is finally able to add a R after their name and so the challenge is to go round in it's honor!!  I didn't have any round sentiments or ones that started with a R but I did have one about smiles...and who wouldn't love a smile in the mail!
You Make Me Smile
I love when a card starts out one way and ends totally opposite of what you started.  I'm breaking out stamp sets I haven't used in a while and trying to make use out of them again.  This stamp set is from Verve.  My daughter had fun helping me punch out all those little circles and I used a circle cutter for the big ones.  The butterflies were stamped and cut out and then covered in Stickles.  I then stamped them again on the circles before adding the cut outs with some glue in the centers and SU Dimensionals on the wings.  I wish I would have started using them sooner since I found out they are thinner then the ones I've bought from Michaels and Joann Stores.  I love 'em! =)  The paper is out of a shimmer stack that I've been hoarding.  I made the most of my paper by cutting the center from the back layer to make my circles and adhering it all to a card base.

Well I'm winded but I hope you've enjoyed!  HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

  3. Happy New Year Samantha! Your card is gorgeous! Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog today. You asked if I used anything special to highlight Dottie's hair, I just blended it out with Copic E31. All my Copic's are listed in the blog post for you. I hope all my hair colors are in row starting or ending with E31. Hope that helps! :)
