Sparkle & Shine challenge

This card is for the Sparkle & Shine challenge, sponsored by Pretty Pink Posh.  It is a photo challenge, with the following as inspiration:

I normally don't do many orange cards (except for Halloween), but this picture is so very pretty, I went with the orange floral theme!
I used Flourishes' Garden Picks stamp set for all of the stamped images, using their cut files to cut them out before stamping.  They were colored with Copics.  For a background, I used UmWowStudio's butterfly mask with Golden Artist Colors Light Molding Paste.  All the edges of both the card top and sentiment strip were cut using Pretty Pink Posh's Stitched Borders 2.  A few Pretty Pink Posh marshmallow sequins finished it off.  The background cardstock was popped up, as was the sentiment strip.

I hope you enjoy looking at all the beautiful cards at the Sparkle and Shine Challenge blog!

When I was taking the pics, I noticed a slight smudge on the upper right section of the card, so I tried to remove it with an eraser.  Well, I made it worse so had to do something to fix it.  I ended up adding more butterflies.  Here's the end result - I wish had I left well enough alone, but the finished card isn't too bad.  (I did like it better before I "fixed" it, though)
