4th LO with my May Madness CKCB kit

Morning all... An early start for me today as I woke up early.. So here is this mornings LO created for design 114 on the Sketchabilities blog where I used this sketch and ScrapStuffz 'Inspired' challenge. 

Here is my take on them.

First I took some plain white card stock and splattered some lilac shimmer mist on to it, then I used Cosmo Cricket 'Tea For Two' pps to create the basis. The observant among you will have noticed that I didn't have any lilac or mauve CS in my kit, so I added a sheet here to double mat the photos on.

I then used a laser cut doily to tuck behind the pps and then mounted the photos onto the background. I fussy cut some labels from the same range of papers and tucked behind two of the photos and then added sparkles, flowers and a butterfly. I finished off with the title that is Amy Tangerine foam letters that I inked to co-ordinate with the flowers.

The photos were taken at Wisley RHS garden last spring when they had a Butterflies in the Glasshouse exhibition. These orchids were so pretty that I felt they deserved a LO all of their own to show them off, although if you look carefully you will see there is a butterfly on the large photo on the top is so well camouflaged that you can barely see it.

I also matched this up with the inspiration photo over on ScrapStuffz blog which gave this photo over their blog to inspire me.. which obviously it did!

Thanks for looking! Come back soon to see what else I've been up to!
