Sandra's Butterfly Birthday Blog Hop 7/30 ~ 7/31

Happy Friday Ladies! I hope you're all enjoying your Weekend ;) Today is a very special day, it's the beginning of Sandra's Butterfly Birthday Blog Hop!  Not only are there some really amazing creations all long the hop, but Sandra is holding a contest in honor of her special day. She is giving away a $20 Gift Card to Joann's and a Quirky Quotes stamp set sponsored by Scrappy Moms Stamps. All you have to do is leave a comment on each  stop along the hop, and Poof, you're entered into the contest. 

With a theme of Butterflies, you know I needed to somehow incorporate butterflies into my card, but if you follow my blog then you know that my theory is, what's a card by me if it doesn't have a bit of sparkle too ;)

I use misc scraps from my collection (hoarding) of paper. I hand dyed the white sequin trim to match the edges of my card.
I then attached nylon butterflies using Helmar Glue Dots. The great thing about Helmar Glue Dots is that it allows you to glue down items that add a lot of dimension to your projects without the fear of them falling off. 
I finished off the card with a simple sentiment using the Cloud 9 Design stamp set "Happy Birthday".
Thank you all so much for stopping by today. Please remember that you will need to leave a comment on each stop of the hop to be qualified for Sandra's big giveaway.
