Are you excited about what you've seen so far!?  Are you ready for more?

artist Michelle Houghton

 Check out FLUTTER HIGH! and our new stencils in so many awesome creations today as you hop around the Krafty Team's blogs!  

For this card I really wanted to bring the shimmer and sparkle!

I then painted with some Tim Holtz shimmer sprays and added some glitter ink overtop. 

I added the butterflies to a chipboard frame that I painted with black paint, stickles, and some gems.
