Butterflies Twist at Crafty Catz Challenge

Good morning my Friends, I hope that you are all keeping wrapped up and warm in this cold weather, especially those who have been hit with snow!! We have had it here in Ayrshire and though it's lovely to see, it's definitely 'brrrrr'!! Thankfully it's Fri, and the weekend is upon us, it also means we have a brand new challenge over at Crafty Catz. We had loads of fab entries last week and look forward to seeing you all back again! Our theme as always is 'Anything Goes' but our twist this week is 'Butterflies', and sponsoring us is the fab Sami Stamps. I have used their gorgeous Wild Flower Beauty! So without further ado, here is what I created for my inspirational project, I hope you like it?!

Matt and layered mirror card with backing paper on to 7x7 white card. I layered contrasting backing paper (9 1/2 x 14 1/2cm) on to more mirror card (10 x 15cm) and placed as shown. On this I added lace ribbon border, then decorated with die cut leaves, butterflies and paper flowers. The image, I printed, coloured, glittered with glamour dust and die cut out then layered on die cut mirror card. To finish off I added die cut sentiment, pearl gems and glitter dots.
