To Brighten Your day

Hi Guys!
I bet you all thought I died or something, its been a whole four days since I posted. Whaaat?
I've been trying to get caught up on upcoming DT and GD projects with limited success. :)
January will be a busy month for sure!
Anyway, today's card is a bit unusual for this time of year, isn't it? I wasn't sure what was in her "bug cage" but decided that fireflies suited my purpose so before they could fly away I doused them with bright gold glitter glue. they won't be going anywhere now. :)

My recipe:

Glittery glow bugs...
