Crafty Individuals Challenge Entry

There's never enough hours in the day, is there!?      Here is my entry for this month's challenge over at the Crafty Individuals Challenge Blog         Check out the details for this month HERE



For my entry, I started by gluing some raw silk fabric for my b'ground, I then added a trimmed turquoise piece of cs roughing up the edges & using an Alterations die for the lower edge.   I then stamped THIS stamp onto white cs as well as onto a prepared domino (I used StaZon Teal Blue) and THIS stamp (the smaller image) onto some kraft card.     I stuck everything into place & then added some white lace ribbon and some musical notes printed twill (both from Craft Queen, of course LOL)   As a last detail, I added the tiny pearls to the butterfly, and a coat of DM to the domino.      There's still a few days to enter this great challenge, if you hurry : )
