Simon Says .......... Glitter It!

wed-newchallenge-header
Time for another challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog!

Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog

This week it's all about Glitter!  The design team are all using Wink of Stella products, and we'd love you to use them, too, if you have them, but it's not a necessity to enter, as long as you have glitter somewhere on your creation. 

 SSS Mar 19

I have been waiting a long time for a hollyhock stamp and Penny Black has delivered it in their latest release!  I colored it with my Spectrum Noir markers, then cut it out and popped it above this MME design paper.  Next I die-cut the Simon exclusive small hello and punched a butterfly from a pink paper in the new Pebbles Garden Party pad.  I also die-cut more of the hellos in white to stack underneath my pink hello.  I used my clear Wink of Stella pen to add some sparkle to the centers of the flowers, the butterfly, and my sentiment.  Here's a closer shot to show you the glimmer.  I especially like how it took on a gold look, over the flower centers:
