Always Beautiful

Soft and sweet is the theme for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge this week - which suited me as I had these papers on my desk ready to go away - how much better to be able to use them on a card - multi-tasking - love it!! This image is one of the ones my friend Sharon (aka*Doris*) sent me....another adorable hedgie - too cute to resist!!

I have chalked the hedgie and added some Kindy Glitz to the greenery in the basket and to the butterflies (which qualifies it for the Stampin.B Challenge). The image is layered onto a pink Nestie (thanks to Melinda80) and I have paper pierced the edges and sponged them....I just love the effect sponging has - not that it is any surprise to anyone! LOL!

It was layered into embossed green CS with strips of torn and sponged DP added down the side. A Die Cut Swirl was added and layered flowers in top of that. I then added flowers with button brads and a sponged sentiment with mini pink pearls added.....I am thinking this is soft and sweet, with butterflies....so I am good in every department - no rules broken!!

Thank you for stopping by, I appreciate you taking the time...please leave a comment so I know you have been - you know I love to see you!! I hope you have enjoyed your weekend...it is Monday here....the kids are back to school and it is very quiet...a bit strange after 3 weeks of noise, but lovely all the same!!! God bless you!
