Happy Birthday Marlou!

Hello there, last Sunday it was my friend Marlou's Birthday and here is the card I made for her. I had seen a few different people take die cuts and cover them with Distress Glitter and I loved the look. I like that the Distress Glitter isn't really shiny and I think it gives a nice look. I also like that you can see the colour underneath when using the Clear Rock Candy. So for my butterfly I first die cut it using an MFT die and then inked it with two Distress Ink pads and a blending tool. I added some  Glossy Accents and then covered with the glitter (a big thank you goes to Debby Hughes for explaining how to do it).


Marlou has sadly been suffering with her health lately and I know first hand how horrible that can be. Sending you get well prayers Marlou :0) Thanks so much for visiting me today.
