I have had this image coloured up for quite some time but was never sure how to use it. A couple of weeks ago, I was at our local Korean dollar store just a mile or so away from my house. I love to peek in there when I post a letter or pick up a prescription, as it is in the same plaza. They have many different items than the big Dollar Stores here, and the lady has a good eye for choosing craft supplies.
The aqua cutwork border is from there...it was a very heavy weight, sateen cardstock cupcake wrapper in another life. The had packets of 8 or so for a dollar. I remembered this image and had to have it.
I managed to use up some more of my Michael's dollar packets of flowers. I try to pick these up whenever they have their clear out after each change of season. I have combined 3 sizes and changed out the bling on the larger layered one. I wrestled with the idea of adding a die cut butterfly, thinking it would be too big. Then I remembered my Stampin' Up Sizzlets set, Beautiful wings. I had a snippet of the teal card left so I cut out some of the smaller ones and set them aflight! I added a touch of Stardust Stickles to bits of the stamped image, to gussy it up just a tad.
