A little bit of sparkle

The Penny Black and More challenge for the month of February is Sparkle and the design team have made some gorgeous cards for inspiration. Pop over to the blog for the challenge details and check out the lovely prizes up for grabs this month.
For my card I used this gorgeous turquoise paper from CraftWork cards which has a lovely delicate doily print on the corners. I used a Penny Black stamp called pin-striped and although it is hard to see,  I added glimmer dust to the leaves and stamens of the flowers and a touch on the with love sentiment and butterflies. There is also sparkle running through the pretty trim I used. The little detailed Butterflies are from a set from Flonz stamps. The tag is cut from a die by Marianne and I used a border punch to give my paper a lacy look. My card was finished off with some Stampin Up buttons and some white pearls.
I have entered my card into the challenges listed below.

I am very fond of aqua colours Shirley and your use of the tone on tone colour makes for a really eye catching creation.

Hope you have a good Sunday.

Such a beautiful creation Shirley, the punch does make the paper look very lacy, lovely colour too.
Thanks so much for your kind words today. If anything the card is a little more blue grey than the photo is showing, didn't realise I was "on trend".
