Celebrate.......

Today's Card has been fun to do...
I splattered the background with shades of blue sprays using acetate 
to control (a little) where the colour goes.
The butterfly has been done with a stencil and glitter embossing paste...ever such a  pretty effect.
The sentiment has been die cut, slightly raised and popped back onto the card.
I have popped on this card to show the beautiful effect of the sprays.
I have used Lindy's sprays..some have mica in them and some are flat colours.
They are so pretty.
Thanks for finding time to stop by x

Absolutely gorgeous, I really like the shades of blue that you've used and it it s great idea of yours to control the colour distribution. I've recently bought some brushos and I definitely need to work on keeping then in control :). Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Crafty hugs, Sandra X
