New Way to Glitter

I recently won a sampling of Zoom Creative Products Mess-Free Glitter. The package contains a double sided tape sheet & a glitter sheet.  It works like a foil sheet & is really slick once you figure it out.  
I'd been wanting to use my Penny Black delicate wings dies with glitter, so decided to give it a try.  I wasn't able to get the intricate die to cut through the tape sheet completely, but the solid one worked great.  I love this gorgeous Caribbean Blue color & I happened to have just the right shade of cardstock to go with it.  

I didn't want to miss another CAS(E) this Sketch! challenge, so it provided my layout. I remember reading that you can group elements together to qualify as CAS, so hope that's how CTS will view my card. MFT Dizzy Doily provides the background for the butterfly which is attached with foam tape. The sentiment from Hero Arts Special Note of Thanks is slightly curved on my acrylic block before stamping & embossing in white on vellum.  The oval die is by LifeStyle Crafts. I'm popping it into the mail to a friend going through a difficult time. Thanks for coming by--your comments are always a bright spot in my day.

  6. Your friend's spirits will soar when she receives this thoughtful, beautiful card you've created! The glitter sheet sounds interesting; I bought some 'cardstock with an adhesive backing' when we were in Bend, which I have yet to use. Your glitter paper sounds similar! Love the colours, the butterfly and the sentiment on vellum: a 'signature' Greta touch!
