Butterflies, Ribbon, & Punch for Fussy & Fancy!

This weeks Fussy & Fancy challenge calls for a recipe of butterflies, ribbon, and punches! So, for my DT project I created a butterfly wall hanging.  I wanted to create something inspirational for my walls because they are so bare so I pulled out my chipboard diecut shapes and this butterfly shape was perfect.

I kept the colors light and started with papers from the My Mind's Eye Follow Your Heart collection.  I painted edges white and pulled my trims and layered those along side a $1 spot frame I picked up at Michael's.  I again added the paper in the frame and used this great Melody Ross Word Plaque to the center.  My Fiskers butterfly punch, flat back pearls, and white seam binding 
finished off my project nicely.

I chose 'trust the journey' because in my creative journey I really rely on the creativity I've been blessed with.  This creativity makes me unique, happy, and thankful.  I hope you are inspired by this project.

Please don't forget to stop by the Fussy and Fancy Blog to join in on this 
challenge for a chance to win a guest designer spot!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
