The OPTIONAL TWIST for today's challenge is:

 Here's my card:
I LOVE me some bling, so this card was really fun to make. I used a background stamp, heat embossed it in "blingy" gold and then fussy cut just the circle and dragonfly. The card base is gold, as is the strip in the background. I added lots of gems for more bling. So much shine on this card my retinas are And don't you just love that greeting. Good 'ole Picasso knew what he was talking about.
