Waltzingmouse PJ Party Part 2

I didn't get time to play along with the bedtime story sketch on Friday night and we've been out and about a lot on our week off, but as we've been waiting in today for a delivery I've had a little time to play so here's my take on the sketch.

I used the cut files on my cameo to cut out the sprigs and flowers in white card before using the Two Step Sprig and Flowers sets with shades of orange, yellow and green inks.  I die cut an oval of white card and inked up a sentiment from Compact Sentiments in black before mounting onto some papermania DP with a strip of teal card from my snippets box.  Once I'd layered up the leaves and flowers to follow the sketch, I added a little frame and butterfly made using the modge podge melts that Claire is stocking.  The frame should have more detail but I tried to emboss it (as shown in the product you tube video) but man do you need to be careful or it all just melts!  I liked the effect though so went with it.  For the butterfly I played it safe and coloured it with nail varnish for a quick but shiny effect.  I finished with a few orange gems for added sparkle.

Hope you like it.
