Buttons and Bows at Divas by Design

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.
Well it has started off so misty and damp here in Gloucestershire - hope it soon brightens up as my squidgilicious Grandson Oliver is coming to play and I had hoped we would get out for a walk along the canal to feed the ducks :o)

Today I'm here to share my DT make for 

and this week the theme is


I had a lovely play with 'some' of my new NEC stash and this is what I came up with:

Here's what I used:
MDF Heart - Bargain bag of mixed sized hearts from the MDF man at the NEC
Design Papers: LOTV 'Raspberry Road Baskets and Bunnies'
Sentiment: Inkylicious 'Moments and Memories
Flowers: Inkylicious Stamped onto cardstock inked with Peeled Paint, Worn Lipstick and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks using Perfect Medium and then heat embossed with white EP
Leaves: Memory Box
Butterflies: Martha Stewart White Paper Clay and then coloured with Worn Lipstick DI and a touch of Star Dust Stickles.
Buttons and ribbon from stash
