Wall Art

I received my new SU! products and didn't have much time to do anything other than look at them :)  But, I'm crazy for designer papers and this new one is amazing.  It has so many colors and designs that are bold and elegant.  I had to do something with it.  I've been saving this frame for some wall art and this paper just screamed at me to use it!  So, I chose the background first.  I then punched some scallop circles to make the flower.  I used every sheet, so it was 10 pieces thick.  I also die cut some butterflies (love those!).   I decorated the butterflies with some pearls.  I wanted a sentiment, so stamped one that I thought worked, punched out pieces to frame it, and mounted it above a piece of satin ribbon.  I decided to add some pearls to the ribbon to tie it all together (no pun intended!)  This is the end result.  I can't wait to hang it after I clean up my craft area! 

Thanks for looking and have a beautiful day :)
