Results of 'Play Day'

I have started putting together some of the 'bits' from the 'play day'. This card was made using 'caught in crystal' where you ink the image on acetate, scrunch up a piece of tissue put it on the back of the acetate, add floor polish and then add H2Os. This is a Clarity Stamps image which I think works really well. I have kept it very plain with just a backing of Script CB pearl card and distressed this with Vintage Photo DI. I stamped another butterfly and couldn't help but glitter it with a little Crystal stickles.
I am entering this card in the following challenges
The Stamp Man - Floral/Mothers Day
Sarah Hurley - Flowers
Simply Create - Monochromatic
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Flowers for Mum
Lets Ink It Up - Embossing

Thats it for now, if you like what you see, please leave a comment and I can visit you - and please pop back.
