Okay so I admit to liking Shakespeare and when faced with a challenge theme of 'your favourite flower and why' I almost gave up immediately as I have so many favourites... until that line from 'Romeo and Juliet' came to mind. One thing I will not do is have flowers in the house as I would much rather see them growing just as they will outside - that is apart from the occasional rose I will take from my Dad's garden as the smell is so wonderful. For that reason alone I guess my favourite flower would have to be the rose.
The paper is a magazine freebie called 'Edwardian Diary of a Country Lady' and I cut and layered a second sheet on top, carefully lining up the design. I cut the Clearly Besotted stamp with QuicKutz nesting dies and I used a Cheery Lynn die for the butterfly. The flowers, ribbon and gems are all from my stash. Finally I added a little touch of Stickles glitter to the butterfly and roses.
and this one shows the touch of glitter a little better
I shall enter this in the following challenges

and as I used snippets of card for my die cuts and a snippet of ribbon I'm heading over to play in Pixie's Snippets Playground where Miss Di challenges to use up our snippets.
Thanks for taking the time to pop by today and I hope you enjoy what's left of your weekend. I'm getting a bit behind with my visits but will hopefully catch up with you all over the next couple of days.
