Spring's Soft Dream....

(...Wishful thinking....)....well the title of this post is for a new challenge blog that I just happened to come by....Cure for the Monday Blues Challenge!!! what a great way to start the week !! yes I know its Thursday...ok so I'm a little late with this...but after seeing the Photo Inspiration I had to join in...

What a lovely room....and those butterflies???'s my take...
I went for the soft peachy hues of the room together with the flow of light.  I used pearlescent embossing paste on the tag which I slightly coloured with SU Calypso Coral and the stencil is by Memory Box.  I punched the butterflies from vellum and coloured the back with the ink again.  Once all adhered in place I added a stroke of Wink of Stella to make them very sparkly and finished with gems which I thought reflected the light and the mirror in the pic.
Do pop over and check out Taheerah's fantastic creation and why not take part the challenge is open until Sunday.
Happy Crafting
