Allsorts - Things with Wings

Good morning. Blimey you go away for a couple of days and Mr Blogger gets annoyed and wouldn't let me sign in - what a nightmare!!!! But patience is the virtue and here I am to share my project for the new challenge theme at Allsorts this week
I decided I wanted to make something other than a card and took inspiration from this that I saw when I visited Katy a couple of weeks ago:

and here is my version:

Close up of butterflies - top one:  

Bottom One:

Butterflies made from Grunge Paper - painted with Acrylic paint first then stamped. embossed and glittered
I cut out two larger ones and then two smaller ones and glued then back to back sandwiching the ribbon inside first.
I now have this hanging on the back of my craft room door - adorned with both my gorgeous new Grandchildren.
Thanks for all the lovely best wishes.
I have had my first snuggle with 'Squirt' as I have affectionately nicknamed Lola Arizona - for reasons that it would be rude to share lol!!! and she is even more gorgeous IRL than the photos I shared earlier this week.

Here are some more up to date ones:

Before I go the winner of my little Birthday Bash candy is
