Butterflies and Blossoms

I went on a shopping spree at Flourishes recently and one of the sets I got was the Butterflies & Blossoms set.  It's such a gorgeous set and I couldn't wait to use it! Of course, I know nothing about flowers or butterflies so I looked up what a clemantis looked like, but all the ones I found were purple or pink and I just wasn't feeling like pink today : /  So, instead they're orangy.  I tried.

The papers used are from the BasicGrey Curio 6x6 Paper Pad.  I used my yummy new silk ribbon from May Arts, added a doily behind the image and did some sewing on the four panels in the back.

The edges of the Nestabilities Labels 2 die were distressed using the Inkssentials Ink Blending Tool using the Vintage Photo Distress Ink Pad while the die cut was still on top of the paper. The image was colored using Distress Reinkers with Small Koi Water Brush.  Feels weird not to have a sentiment on the front.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy New Year!!
