I love butterflies, bows, flowers, pearls, rhinestones....

The challenge at Sweet Stampin' this week is "Butterflies and Bows".  The image I used is by Sugar Nellie.

I used a corner die by Joy, Spellbinders dies for the oval image and the birdcage, and my new butterfly die is by Elizabeth Craft Designs. My flowers are a combination from Recollections and Wild Orchid. The border punch across the middle is by Martha Stewart. I used a pretty two sided satin ribbon for my bow.

I colored the image with copics and added Star Dust Stickles to the butterflies.  The weekly sponsor for this challenge of "Butterflies and Bows" is the Ribbon Girl who has donated a £10 voucher and our monthly sponsor is Cuddly Buddly who has donated a £10 voucher!

The Design Team at Sweet Stampin' has made some wonderful examples to inspire you and I hope you'll join us this week!
