Just Add a Sentiment Challenge.

The theme of this weeks challenge at Crafting Cardmakers is "Just Add a Sentiment".  For my card I used a large floating butterfly die for my card which I cut out in white.  My background was made in a fun technique called Shattered Glass.  To complete the card I used a Happy Birthday sentiment die and painted the butterflies with A Wink of Stella.  

I love the Shattered Glass technique and spent the afternoon making a few background for more project.  Pop over to our challenge blog to view the inspiring projects from our talented design team.

Hope you will join us this week,  Thank you for stopping by and have a creative week.
