3CT It's All About the "Bling!"

Welcome! - Today it's all about the "Bling" for the 3CT Challenge.  So if you love sparkly, glittery, shiny things this is the place for you.                                   
For this card I used the Mojo Monday95 sketch.  I always seem to be about a week behind with the sketches but this one was to cool to pass up so here it is. 
My card base is Chocolate Chip layered with Whisper White and Groovy Guava (retired) that I ran through the Cuttlebug using the Floral Embossing Folder. 
I stamped the butterfly (Inkadinkado) with Basic Gray ink and colored it with Prisma Color Pencils.  Then I added Key Lime Glitter (Art Institute) to the butterflies wings and some shimmer on the dot trail with a Orange Spica Glitter Pen.  My background paper is by SEI from the Mimosa collection.  The striped piece has glitter on it and the green piece is the reverse side. 
I added a scalloped border of Chocolate Chip that I added some sparkle to with Saddlebag Glitter (AI).  I stamped the Sentiment with Chocolate Chip ink and added 3 Rhinestone Jewels (Icons from Me and My Big Ideas).  I also added Kiwi Twill ribbon to complete my card.  This is really very SPARKLY in real life but so hard to capture in a photograph.

Be sure to stop by the other Design Team members blog after clicking on the 3CT Icon on my sidebar and see their glitter and glitzy creations and then go try it out yourself.
