TIME OUT Challenges #11 Celebrations & Optional Twist Butterflies


Wow, these fortnights are passing SO quickly and it's time for the next challenge over at TIME OUT Challenges! This fortnight is a theme challenge, the theme being...

 Celebrations with the optional twist of butterflies

We have a FABulous sponsor for this challenge... Stamplorations. For those who use the optional twist with your entry you will be in the chance of winning...

* 1 stamp set for the entry that has the twist (butterflies)
* 1 stamp set for the entry that has a STAMPlorations stamp (with or
without the twist)

Here is my take on the theme...

If you stop by here often you will know that I LOVE butterflies, so it may not really be a surprise to you that I had to go with the optional twist! I started out by drawing a circle with a pencil and adding LOTS of rhinestones to create a circle of sparkle. I have a ton of this colour and size of rhinestone in my stash left over from a Wedding Invitation commission I did a few years ago.

The butterflies are from English Country Garden - Butterflies and the sentiment from FONTiments - Birthday.

This fortnight we have a lovely guest designer joining us, Sarah, be sure to stop by Sarah's blog Funky Fossil Designs to see how she was inspired by the photo and of course the FABulous TIME OUT Challenges Design Team...

For all the info and to link up your challenge be sure to stop by the TIME OUT Challenges blog. I look forward to seeing your creations :) I'll be back tomorrow with more to share, until then, thank you for stopping by today.
