Butterflies and pigtails ...

This week's Totally Papercrafts Challenge theme has been chosen by the lovely Carole, and it is
Butterflies,Buttons and Bows
This weeks fabulous sponsor is Simon Says Stamp



Simon Says Stamp




 I used Butterflies and Pigtails from Sugar Nellie's Simply Sassy range, and coloured her with my promarkers and flexpens.  The dp is MME Dooled up, and I distressed it all to give it a shabby look.  I added some lace, organza ribbon and a double bow with a button centre to it, a pearl swirl and some extra pearls, and a layered up flower.  Finally I added some star dust stickles to the base of the iamge and butterflies.


Challenges:
Sugar Bowl - sketch and shabby chic
Addicted to stamps - lots of bling
Dream Valley - something old (stamp) something new (papers)
The Ribbon Girls - pearls
Stamp with Fun - button
passion for Promarkers - lace and swirls
Oldie but a goodie - recipe (1 image, 2dp, 3 flowers)
Charisma Cardz - seeing fdouble (same dp using twice, 2 butterflies!)
