Colour Combo's Galore 183

Hello - hope you are all having a fabulous week.  I've been having internet woes so haven't had much time on here - which can be a good thing - yesterday I cleaned my craft room and it's sooooo neat - I can see the stuff I want to use!!  Anway, I finished up this LO for CCG the other day and today I saw it's in the gallery faves - so really happy about that.
Here is the colour and inspiration picture:

And here's my LO:

I'm enjoying misting and went with the butterfly inspiration to use different butterflies as masks to create this background with glimmer-mist.
The journalling reads: ..... to capture your expressions as you run towards me, arms out-stretch, and to hear you say 'I love you mum'..... is something very special.
Here are some close-ups:
I've made this butterfly from two pieces of chipboard - Corner #1 from Stuff 2 Scrap - when I poped them together, it really looked just like a butterfly - I've added a few rhinestones to finish it off.  I've painted the chipboard with black paint.

A Prima flower and swirls of orange/white twine which you can find in my shop - Creative Bits.
Assorted buttons and paper roses attached to a tag!

I really love how this LO came together - I created it after having a wonderful visit with the amazing Leeann Pearce - it was so lovely to meet her IRL and to see her AMAZING craft room - wow - I couldn't stop thinking about it for the rest of the day!!!

Thanks for coming by and happy crafting.
