Spritzy and Shimmery Beautiful Wings


How are you today?  It's cold and grey here but think we are missing the worst of the snow.  

Did you know that today is the last day of Sale-A-Bration?  Yep I know it's sad but it has to end.  You can still place orders but best hurry so you don't miss out!  It's a whole year until the next Sale-A-Bration.  Also today is the last day to pick up that bargain starter kit with the extra 25% included.  You can join online so it's so easy but make sure you do it before 22.00 tonight to be on the safe side.  It would be wonderful to have you on board! 

So let's take a look at today's card.  I've followed a few challenges so I've listed them below for ease.  First off the card base is Pacific Point.  I made a Whisper White panel and created a mask from some punched out Elegant Butterflies.  I dusted off my Brayer and started with Bashful Blue then added some Pacific Point along the bottom.  Taking off the masks I spritzed the panel using my new Spritzer filled with water Marina Mist and Frost White Shimmery Paint.  You should see it real life as it creates a gorgeous shimmer over the panel. I added my panel to a frame of Basic Black.  I used Beautiful Wings Embosslit for my 3d butterflies in Bashful Blue, Pacific Point and Daffodil Delight.  My sentiment tag is from That's The Ticket stamped in Daffodil Delight and punched out the Ticket Duo Builder Punch

This was a lovely colour palette to work with.  We need a bit of colour today! 

Fancy cheering yourself up with some crafting and receiving a parcel of goodies each month?  I have only 2 places left in my new Stampers 6 starting in April so sorry it's get your skates on to make sure you are part of the club.  April is coming round fast!
