Glitter! Glitter! and more glitter.

This card has to be one of my favourites.  First I letter-pressed the background after following Stamp TV's video and really liked the outcome.  But how to finish it without covering up the background.  Well my idea came from Holly from TJ yahoogroups who posted this 'glittery peony' card on her blog.  It gave me the idea on how I wanted to finish my card.  Thank you Holly!

I used Tim Holtz distress ink for the background.  Memory Box dies for the butterfly which I covered with Tim Holtz distress glitter.  Please click on Holly's card to see how it is done.

This is a method I know I will use again and again.
