I'm entering this card into two challenges, ABC challenge which is ribbon - I'm not sure this counts - I have some lavender spotted voile ribbon beneath my flowers but the other ribbon is created from one of the new stamps from Lili of the Valley, so if it doesn't count just ignore me!! The other challenge is Flutter By Wednesday - I definitely have a butterfly, I have made the easel to have two stopper points, the second one showing the sentiment and using the butterfly as the stopper.
I really had fun with this one using a lot of Lili of the Valley's new Additions range of stamps - the corner stamps, the script stamp are both two of the new ones, and I used one of the other set of corner stamps around the edge of the image, the ribbon and bow and the flowers are also from the new sets and my sentiment is one of the new ones, absolutely fabulous and a must have!!
My image is a Toadstool for Two and I've water coloured it with distress inks then inked around the edges with Vintage photo distress ink. The papers are from an old Papermania stack called Nostalgia stamped with another of the new additions corner stamps. The piece behind the image is the text/leaf stamp and the 'ribbon' and bows are from the new additions range also.
The flowers were samped with yet another of the new Additions stamps, I added two of the larger flowers, two of the smaller shaped them and fastened them together with a small brad and sat them upon some spotted voile ribbon from The Ribbon girl and some leaf swirls cut with Sizzix die.
This is the card opened using the 2nd stopper which is a butterfly stamp (now probably an antique) and showing the sentiment panel.
My weekends have become so manic recently I'm starting to look forward to Mondays - how sad is that!!!
