Fabulous Friday

Hi everyone.    Yay, it's Friday!  I have had a fabulous week and seem to be getting more focused and more in tune with my crafting.

I still have a few days to cover in the week, but I hosted a coffee morning this week, so that threw me out a little LOL!

It's inspiration week over at Polkadoodles this week, for our fortnightly challenge and the current theme is Flower Power.

I wanted to try something a little different for mine this time around.  What do you think?

I started off with a little tiny frame, 3.25" square.  The paper, butterfly and flower are all from the Dollie Daydream Goes East collection.  This collection is now available as a CD or as an immediate download bundle, see the links at the end of the post.  The images were pre-coloured.

I layered up the butterfly, which is only 1.25", four times and added some glossy accents to the wings and body.  I did have to add some wire for the antennae because it was so small. The flower and butterfly were cut out using my Cameo.

I just loved how the butterfly looks like enamel.

For the flower I only enameled the leaves and centre of the flowers, and the bud.

My daughter, Shannon, has already claimed it for her bedroom :-)

So, why not create something and no doubt most of you add flowers to your creations, go along and enter our challenge.

I am entering this creation in the following challenges.
