Hello and welcome...
 We have a very sparkly purple card today.  I apologise for the background!

The card is a white A5 size and I began by die cutting the background die from the Indonesian Collection.  There are 5 dies in the set and I used dies 1 and 3, these do not have an outer cutting edge

I cut a piece of purple card stock, slightly larger than the die and covered it with a piece of double sided adhesive, then placed the two dies onto it and ran it through my Platinum Machine.  I ensured the adhesive sheet was not covering the border as I wanted that plain

Once die cut and embossed I removed the adhesive sheet and sprinkled Glitter Jewels Diamond Snow and burnished it in.  I can't enthuse enough about this glitter!  If anyone is interested I do have a few pots remaining in gold, silver, rose pink, red and a blue, they're £3.50 each and no p&p!
If you click on the card you'll see the gorgeous sparkle from these glitters

I used a spray adhesive to secure the die cut to the base card then, using another stamp from yesterday's stamp set, I stamped it onto purple card using Versafine Onyx Black Ink.  I covered the sentiment with another piece of double sided adhesive I die cut it with one of the Stitched Flags from the Frames And Tags Die Set

I removed the backing and sprinkled Diamond Snow over it then added mounting foam to the back and adhered it to the card base

I made a small white satin bow, added a 'dollop' of 3D glue to the side of the tag and placed the bow on top.  I added 5 tiny pink roses around the bow and to complete I glittered a white butterfly with Diamond Snow, added two pink pearls to the spine and adhered to the centre of the main focal point
