Allsorts challenge 12

Week twelve at Allsorts and when you read this I should be somewhere in the Solent headed for the Bay of Biscay - gosh I do hope the weather is kind because it can rock and roll a bit out there at times. Although I won't be able to blog for the next couple of weeks.....laptop strictly prohibited apparently - can't people be spoilers...... I have schedule several posts so my blog doesn't go into complete hibernation.......all I need is the support of Mr Blogger and all should go according to plan.

This week is Lisa's theme and she challenges you to use 3 flowers, 2 papers and 1 ribbon, plus image and sentiment. This was a really nice one to work with even if I did forget the ribbon initially so improvised and changed the butterflies thorax from gems to ribbon........why not I thought, I do live in a fantasy world most of the time.

My main image is ........OK I know, but had to use it before I left otherwise I might get withdrawal symptoms ....... yes Stampendous P107 (how sad is this I don't even have to check the side of the stamp for codes any more) stamped with versamark and embossed with detail copper. The DP is My Minds Eye and I have cut the circles using Nesties through the Bug. The three tiny flowers were cut with a punch and lightly shaded round the edges with Brilliance copper and the butterfly cut with the lovely XCut punch, all from the same DP. The greeting is one I adore from Hobby Arts GR1353DD stamped and embossed with the same materials as the image. Gems added to the flowers and I explained the butterflies thorax earlier.
