Hi there, 

Welcome to March and the latest SNS Creative Challenge.  This month's challenge is to use glitter anywhere in your project!  Now, who out there has a problem with that? 

I was going to use my old faithful - Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter and color on it, but then changed my mind to go with an old technique - Glittered Lace Background - using some of the new Velvet Glitters that we have in the store.

Here is what I came up with:

There is glitter on every aspect of the card!  First I made the background using the Super Adhesive Sheets (SAS02) and a piece of random lace I had sitting around with two of the Velvet Glitters - Frosted Carmine Velvet Glitter and Cloud Nine. Then I covered the purple swirls with brushable glue and Celebration Velvet Glitter. Once I had "glitterfied" the butterfly I covered it with Versamark and heat embossed with Sparkle Embossing Powder.

Of course, in real life, the lace background is far more sparkly - but it still feels like fabric!  

Here's an up close and personal:

Here are the full instructions in case you need them.

So that's my show and tell for today!  Get the glitter out and get sparkly!  You have a whole month to join in the challenge. I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

'Till then,

Sparkle on!
