Friends of Speedy TV challenge - Add Sparkle

The Friends of Speedy TV challenge this week is to make a card with sparkle, join us here for a chance to win a stamp set:
With the wonderful challenge to use sparkle, I decided to make my day extra special and add purple too! I heat embossed two sets of these gorgeous glads and water colored with Stampin Up reinkers, the black embossing adds an extra shimmer to my sparkly creation along with glitter glue added to the centers of the flowers and butterfly. Two of the flower buds are cut out and layered with foam tape for lots of dimension, the butterfly is also popped. To top off this sparkle laden card, I added a shimmery bow with button and twine accent.
Stamps: Mark's Finest Papers - Glad Glads stamp set
Accessories: Spellbinder oval and rectangle dies, embossing folders, My Favorite Things button and twine, glitter glue, foam tape, sparkly sheer ribbon, heat embossing, Stampin Up reinkers, water pen.
