Make it Monday #3 glitter strips...{butterfly wish big}

I love this "wish big" sentiment from Papertrey Ink and I am excited to play along with their Make It Monday challenge this week...glitter strips with scor tape!  I DO love glittery bits whether it be micro glitter or bling from Want2Scrap, if it sparkles I like it!  Check out the results of pouring micro glitter over super sticky scor tape....
Wowsers!  That's SHINY!  I used my glitter strip as an accent to a white paper punched edge.
I also used pieces of the Large Pair Fancy Brackets in pearl from Want2Scrap for my butterfly flight path.  A simple once over with a raspberry sharpie creates that hot pink pearl swirl.
I was also able to customize my layered butterflies using two seamstress pins for antennae secured in foam dimensional tape.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Hi Dana! Thanks for popping by my blog today. It was so nice to 'see' you. :)
Your glitter sure is shimmery! I have yet to try the glitter on Scor-Tape trick, and you've reminded me of that. Thanks! Love the seamstress pin antennae on the pretty butterfly. So clever of you! Have a wonderful day.
