This little "glittered gem" was made on Mother's Day. I chose to spend the day doing what's fun for me and it was in the craft room. The image made me think of how special moms are and that's why there is glitter on the bow and on the shoes; moms seem to "sparkle" alot, don't you agree? I found a sketch challenge over at the Magnolia-Lious blog site and played with April's. Bought pom poms several months thinking I could get creative using them, but they never seemed to work before, so tried once more and sweet hubs thinks it looks as if Tilda is sitting on a pom pom fence...ha ha! What would I do without his input???? I'm so thankful that there is someone for me to turn to for assurance, ideas, or even get to make things.
LOVE charm is another gift from my sweet friend, Mita. She is venturing out on her own and opening up a scrapbook store in Sweden, so if you live near Sparreholm, please stop by and say hello to her for me!
Have a wonderful spring day and hopefully your're inspired in some way with this card, such as using glitter when you shy away from it. If you use the Two Way Glue pen, you'll do great. I like the fact that you mark only the areas that you want glitter to stick, and that the glue doesn't spill over into other areas.

Thanks for stopping by,
The main image was first stamped with the Italian Poetry stamp (Hero Arts) and overstamped with a butterfly from Inkido. The butterfly was colored with Stampin' Up markers in various colors; this particular stamp really holds the "juice" of the markers well before actually stamping. All the dp papers are from Basic Grey, the Ambrosia line. The cs is from Papertrey Ink as well as the ribbon. The border punch is from MS's line of paper punches. Corner punch, vintage corner, is from EK Success. The flowers were punched and had some glitter from MS added to the centers. The ink is Tuxedo Black from Memento (this is the go to ink pad for stamping.)
Wishing you a day of sunshine, inside and out,
