Shimmery Butterfly




This seems to be my week of challenges and firsts...today's first is my use of Shimmerz!! I keep seeing them, loving them, and when I finally got a little extra money, I thought...have to have them now!! Well, I can't get them locally, so I went on the web in search of them. Lo and behold, I saw that Pamela at Firecracker Designs carries them in her webstore. That was awesome because she lives less than a half hour from me! I called her up, ordered them, and I went to pick them up the next day! I was beside myself with excitement! I had to play with them, even just a little! I used them to paint over the butterfly image from Savvy Stamps. I used Angel Wings over the Memento Rich Cocoa ink.

This card is for two challenges--Splitcoast's SCS214 and the Color Throwdown blog's CTD28. It was so much fun to play both challenges for my Wednesday stamping!

And, I'm so excited that my orders came from The Greeting Farm and Paper Makeup stamps today! I cannot wait to play with them!!

Very pretty, Nancy! I have seen lots of things with the Shimmerz, too, but haven't broken down to get any myself! Looks great on the butterfly!

Very pretty card, Nancy! Love that shimmery butterfly and the embossed chocolate layer! You live close to me...I'm a little south of Rock Hill, SC. My daughter and son-in-law live in Charlotte and he's from Western NY too!
