Glittery Flutter By Wednesday

Welcome to Flutter By Wednesday! This week we are being sponsored by former flutter by team member, Stef-Glitterbabe. She graciously drew three flutter by's for the team to choose from, if they wish, so be sure to check out all the flutter by team members blogs to see their creations.
Stef has also graciously donated a prize!! A winner from the participants will be randomly picked and will receive 2 free digi images from Stef's Etsy Shop.
Our challenge this week is to use sparkle on your new creation along with your butterfly, fairy or angel. 
Once you've created your new card or project, place your direct link into InLinkz on the Flutter By Wednesday blog.  If you upload to SCS or other gallery, please use the keyword FBW so we can all find your wonderful creations!!

So here are my two cards for today.  The first one uses Stef's butterfly - the first time I have used a digital image!! 
I used Stickles after I colored the butterfly in with markers.  I also used a new Cuttlebug embossing folder with butterflies!  

For the second card I used the same sketch (SC275) and stamped the panels with Hero Arts Birds and Butterflies set.  I used my PaperTrey butterfly die to cut out the butterfly and stamped it with an image from the PaperTrey Butterfly Dreams set.  The butterflies were colored with Copics and then I used a black Spica Glitter pen to color over the black ink on the butterflies.  I finished those colored in butterflies with some Amuse Twinklers.  The glitter does not show up in the photo!

Thanks for coming by!
