 Onto today's project....
Hey Girl D3905 was stamped with Versafine Onyx black and clear embossed.  It was framed with one of the frames from the All-In-One Frames - Rectangles 2 DIE291-WW  and cut the silver sparkle paper.  

 I do love the  Fancy Butterfly DIE059-N!!  I die cut it in turquoise card stock and sponged it a bit with Memento Grape Jelly Ink.  Before adhering the black piece of the butterfly I touched it up with a wee bit of Wink of Stella Clear for a bit of shimmer that the camera never seems to pick up.
 The 3 round embellishments in the bottom right hand corner are just pop dots with microfine glitter burnished in.  

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!!
