Crafty Ann's Challenge #32

***************************
 the theme for this challenge is

Ring in the New but don't ring out the old! 

Use something new and something old on your project. This could be something you got for Christmas or a new idea you got when blog hopping, and some stash or technique you've had for ages.


For my card I tried something new and that is the glazed butterfly. I'm sure a lot of you have already used this technique. Suzanne did a tut on her Creative Expressions blog and I thought it looked interesting.

I cut down a washed out baked bean can to use to melt the UTEE....the leftover has set in the can ready for another time.
Old is some BP from my files. I used polished stone for the mat and a flower from the Blossoms sheet . Loads of glitter on the flower
I scored the mat for a quilted effect, although tis a shame the pic doesn't show it too well.


Look at all that shine and sparkle :-)
