Spread Your Wings and Fly

I am super excited to share with you today my first project as a DT member for Scrapbooker PHD.
The theme for the challenge is Bling It Up
We are sponsored by
I used this adorable butterfly fairy from Mo's Digital Pencil. 
I added Bling, sparkle and shine to my project using several different mediums.
 I did not start out with plans to use this color scheme.  I was playing around with my Aged Silver Embossing enamel mixed with gold glitter to see what it would look like on black paper.   I used the same embossing enamel on the leaves cut with my spellbinders leaf dies in white paper.  I loved the look
The butterfly is punched from gold glitter paper with some added rhinestones for some extra bling.
The swirls are from the Divine Say It In Crystals collection from Prima.  I love how they progress from clear rhinestones to light yellow pearls.
After coloring the wings with copics, I painted them with extreme glitter paint.  I added gold stickles to the tutu and flower after coloring with copics.
 This card is for my son's girlfriend.  They will be graduating from high school next month.  The school colors are black and gold.
