Getting Cricky Simply Sunday Challenge "Its a celebration"

Hi Everyone!
Welcome to the Getting Cricky Simply Sunday Challenge. This really was a challenge for me. We had to make a card for a celebration. I couldn't figure out what to do for it, but as soon as I saw my new stamps, I realized this is what I wanted to do.

I used yellow sparkly cardstock to cover the frame. Then scraps to punch the purple and green scalloped circles. I stamped the sentiment, frame and butterflies in purple ink.  I used the set K Andrew Designs set Winged Things.

 I glittered the butterflies and frame in clear stickles, then used gold stickles to dot in the scalloped circle, and finally I used silver stickles to dash the inside and outside of the frame.

Jessie, I just love the way you made this a frame of celebration. The color is wonderful. Using the stamps the way you did just makes the frame some special and it shows off the stamps so well. The addition of the stickles gives the framethatspecial sparkle.
Happy New Year!!
