Amazing Butterfly

I'm still playing with some of my new toys from the Valley Forge CK Scrapbooking Convention. While there, I found a new stamp company that I love - The Stamps of Life. They've been around for a couple of years now, but this was the first that I had heard of them, so of course I bought a few of their sets AND became a club member (who doesn't want a set of stamps delivered to their home monthly??).  My first set came this past week, so I put it to good use with another set that I had already bought - 

The butterfly, its flight trail, and the sentiment are from the butterfly2build set.  

The flowers, stems and leaves are just a sampling from the branches4flowers set.  

I love the style of the butterfly and wanted to color it in with a little glitter to make it "amazing" like the sentiment says, so I stamped it on some acetate with StazOn and filled it in on the back side with different colors of glitter... I love how sparkly it turned out!

Since I ended up using a myriad of colors on it, I decided to enter it in the Wee Memories Dare to Color Challenge - 


Paper - Pool Party by Stampin' Up!
Ink - Island Indigo, Wisteria Wonder, Lucky Limeade, Calypso Coral, Basic Black all by Stampin' Up!; Black StazOn
