The best thing to hold on to..... (by Sheena Douglas)

Here's a little 7'' plaque made for my daughters boyfriends mum as a birthday gift, My daughter ask for this as her boyfriends mum loves her butterflies so I hope she likes it.

Items used 
Tim Holts 'shaded lilac' distressing ink pad
Stampendous gold Halo glitter
Swirl stamp
2 butterfly peel offs
Silver WOW embossing powder
easel board and stand

I used a Sheena Douglas stamp , from the 'A little bit Sketchy' range called 'Only words - through the rain' for the sentiment and then her beautiful flowers  again from her A5 - A little bit sketchy' range (flower power) for the decoration around the sides , Everything was stamped using a versamark stamp and then heat embossed with some silver WOW powder, the flower centres are a blob of comic shimmer glue and a generous offering of gold Halo glitter from Stampendous and the lilac butterflies were make simply by using a butterfly peel off onto some paper and inking through with the shaded lilac distressing ink. The backing paper was some light blue paper I had laying around in my craft room and was too nice to throw away and this was all mounted onto a small easel card and wooden stand.

I do love the way this has come out , would be ideal for any occasion , birthdays ,Anniversaries, valentines day etc.. Its the second one I made, the first now sits on MY sideboard for a change but I think this one is nicer...
