Papertrey Ink June Blog Hop Challenge...Plus




It's PTI Blog Hop day--yah!  The inspiration is bright, fun & summery.  I was immediately drawn to the rainbow popsicles--especially the ones with a dark purple section. 
They made me think of a background panel, so I pulled out PTI inks Plum Pudding, Royal Velvet, Blueberry Sky, New Leaf, Bright Buttercup & Orange Zest along with Memento Love Letter.  Since popsicles are icy, I splattered the blended panel with drops of Perfect Pearls.  Wonderful Words: Hello was die cut 3 times & the top layer was heavily brushed with WOS & covered with Nuvo Glaze. 
All the shimmer & shine is so pretty in real life.  I'm also entering CAS-ual Fridays & SSS Wednesday.

The Plus in my post title is because I'm also sharing my entry for the WCMC9 Sparkle & Shine challenge. 
I saw the square die cut on my table, so started with that.  My friends are so sweet to send me lots of die cuts, including C&9 Floral & Flutter.  I attached 2 together & then covered a 3rd one with gold WOS.  That didn't provide enough sparkle since it's a delicate image.  I pressed on VersaMark & used a gold glitter embossing powder which gave plenty of beautiful sparkle. 
The top butterfly is attached to the white ones only in the center & the wings are gently lifted up.  I kept it simple with stickers for a sentiment, a black mat & a single gold sequin.  I'm also entering AAA Cards, Mrs A's Butterfly Challenge & HLS AGWD.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
