Say it with Flowers ...

Hiya Crafty Friends, I'm here again with another piece of inspiration for you. This time for Crafty Addicts new challenge, that starts today. Kindly sponsoring us this month is Lacy Sunshine and I am using the gorgeous Rory's Lilacs, which is very apt for our optional theme of 'Say it with Flowers', but you can still follow our normal 'Anything Goes'. I really enjoyed creating this one, as I was able to use some of my new paper flowers that my son brought me back from his holiday in Florida (having been pointed in the direction of a Michael's store that was close to his hotel lol)  and with lilacs being one of my favourite flowers, but also my favourite colour too!!

Finishing off with die cut butterflies and adhesive jewels!...
