Good Thing

Hi everyone, It's time for another SUO creation - last night I felt like colouring and out came one of my favourite hostess sets of all time, Time Well Spent. After looking at all my paper samples I decided on this Fall Flowers DP, I'd forgotten how cool it is!

The colour combo here is Old Olive, Really Rust, Soft Sky & River Rock.

The sketch for this card comes from Karen, I loved this one - lots of room to highlight that cool paper! I coloured the butterflies with ink pads, then dabbed on my glitter glue paint to create raised, sparkly accents. When I was done with the panel it just needed a little something, so I pleated some Old Olive ribbon behind the panel to finish it off.

Hopefully you can see the glittery detail in this shot. I like making my own glitter glue like this when I want a raised, shiny finish.

I finished the inside of the card with the other great sentiment from this set, another butterfly, more glittery goodness and DP. I hope you like it!
