Summery Birthday

I recently got some new My Minds Eye papers that I've been dying to have a play with so I combined it with a few challenges and this is the result...

(Sorry the photo isn't great, there wasn't any natural light when I took the photo).

Sketch from Spoon Full Of Sugar, I used faux stitching around the image for Creative Inspirations, buttons for the centre of the flowers for Just Magnolia and the Cupcake Craft challenge was to include blossoms and butterflies . The Roses On Paper challenge is 'summer and vacation' and the Simon Says challenge is 'summer fruit colours'. The My Minds Eye papers are so lush and juicy, these areas also covered.

Thought I'd try a new way of showing what materials I've used so here goes -

Image: Magnolia, Kars 'Children' clear stamps for the butterflies (both coloured with Copics)
Papers: My Minds Eye - Bloom and Grow
Tools: Carla Craft flower punch, large Dovecraft flower punch, Woodware grass fronds punch
Embellishments: Anita's gems, buttons from stash, stickles glue
