Afternoon all,

It surely has been a sobering couple of days with the death toll steadily rising in Victoria from those dreadful fires. No way can I imagine the absolute horror of experiencing such a firestorm! It is heartwrenching to see that level of destruction and loss, both human and animal. The most devastating thing about the whole thing is that it was deliberately lit! One can only hope they catch the arsonist/s, tie them to an ant's nest and walk away!!!!

I decided to brighten the day with colour. Here is sample of a card I am working on for a glitter card challenge. I wasn't in the mood for all out glitter ...as it takes me weeks to eliminate just one little session of that stuff, so I resorted to the good old glitter glue. I used it to highlight the swirls amongst all the butterflies. I had to take the photo side on as the glitter was really flashing out the whole card...but trust me...it IS there!

Beautifully done. I love how the butterflies seem to be justy flitting about and such softness. I love how you used black to make it pop!
