So delicate...

Can you tell by my layouts that I LOVE taking tons of pictures of butterflies? I usually go to the Butterfly Festival and the Butterfly Garden at the zoo every year. They are the most cooperative animals ever! And when the sun is shining...they perform and show off so much. They are so beautiful!!!
So I used yet another 5 x 7 picture for this beautiful sketch from Stuck on U Sketches. I'm not sure I like my cluster of flowers. I kinda used a hodge podge of everything I found in my flower drawer.
The patterned papers and the butterflies pieces are all from Basic Grey's Ambrosia collection. The big one is a chipboard piece and the smaller ones were cut from the patterned papers. I used pop dots on them to give them dimension. Again, my lousy picture taking abilities doesn't show that so well.
I used an 8 inch doily for behind the picture. I used Tim Holtz distressing inks on the whole thing. :)
The title was put together with the very few letters I have left over from Basic Grey Chocolate Chip alphas.
I'm just happy that I was able to put this whole page together using old goodies!! When they pictures came in the mail, my first thought was YEAH!! I get to go shopping!!
Oh well...maybe for next year's festival....

The gorgeous ribbon of flowers across the bottom is from Prima.
