When I returned from vacation I had a bunch of Petaloo goodies in my mailbox.....so I pulled out some of the Petaloo AMAZINGNESS..... gotta love the Color Me Collection!!

The flowers used on this layout:

Crocheted ~ colored with Chipped Sapphire
Orchids Loosed ~ painted with Chipped Sapphire
Gypsies ~ colored with Barn Door &
Aged Mahogany
and Rosebuds ~ separated and left uncolored

So.....when today arrived I just couldn't wait to create...

And SEE the wonderful butterfly embellies,

What a gorgeous piece of art, Lynne! I really love the way you added the buckram flowers over the stamped ones! Very clever and beautiful - I started drooling as soon as I saw it.

I have been meaning to try buckram. I always see it next to the crinoline when I buy my crinoline and I know it's heavier and stiffer than crinoline. Looks like it works fabulous for making the shabby flowers!

Hope you are having a great week.
