Swirls & Flourishes

Happy Friday everyone. It's mid challenge inspiration time over at Polkadoodles and for my make this week I used the very resourceful Lavender CD collection. I created a decorative mat in my graphics programme by duplicating one of the gorgeous swirly panels found in the embellies section and blinged it up with some stickles and gemstones. The butterfly was duplicated 
three times and shaped and layered up then sprayed with glitter and gemstones added. I copied & pasted one of the sentiments onto the cute little tag & glued those to the mat using silicone glue. Then it was just a case of assembling my card. I printed off some backing paper from the collection and inked around the edge. I then wrapped some green ribbon around the middle but it was a little bit garish so to tone it down a bit I added some off white lace. I then cut out some ornate 'tuck in'  butterflies using a contrasting card stock then using foam tape I raised the centre piece up. I do hope you like it.

Thanks very much for stopping by. I do love to read all your comments.
