Sweet Lilac Flowers - Bling it Up

I'm very pleased to announce that I have been invited to join the new Design Tean for Sweet Lilac Flowers who not only have an amazing selection of paper flowers but also stock beautiful lace and pretty pearly embellishments too.

This months Challenge is "Bling it Up" and therefore I decided to use a piece I created a while ago (I've been saving it for something special) and cut it up to make a pop up box card.  Unfortunately the pic doesn't show all the lovely texture and glitter.

I proceeded to cut it up and layer it onto blue mirror card for a bit more bling.

With some of the Sweet Likac Flowers I tend to treat them a bit like flowers I've die cut in so much as I ink them, cut into them, wet and squish them etc. Below is a before and after photo.

Hope you don't mind so many pictures!  Here's the final piece to which I've also added a little butterfly
