Fairy Tilda in Purple

I am so excited to share this project with you.  CropStop posted a tutorial I made about Painting with Liquid Pearls, Stickles and Glitter Glue.  Hop on over there and see it!  You'll be adding shimmer and shine to your projects in a new and fun way too!

I painted Tilda's wings in Lilac Liquid Pearls.  I also added some purple glitter glue to the large flower to add some shine.

By moving the card in the light the liquid pearls on the wings shine!

I made the butterflies using Martha Stewart's butterfly punch on some designer paper and added some bling to them.  

I used this gorgeous lace on the bottom and stamped "Dream" onto the tag... I embossed it with detail white embossing powder.

I originally made this card using a sketch but I wasn't able to post this in time and that challenge ended.  It's ok because I also made this for a number of other challenges - unfortunately one of those ended ONE HOUR ago.  I guess I should have saved the dishes until tomorrow, right?  hehe!

These are the challenges I'm entering this card into:
Simon Says Stamp and Show:  anything goes!
Magnolia Down Under Challenge:  make your embellishments - butterflies
7 Kids Challenge:  color me purple
All That Scraps Blog:  Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly: In the Garden
Card Making Mamas: May Flowers
 Hotshot Craft Blog: use die cuts
Joyful Stamper: Anything Goes
Dies to Die for:  Anything Goes

Thank you for coming by!  Don't forget to hop on over to  CropStop and check out the tutorial.  As always I appreciate each and every visit and comment.  Have a great week!
