Purple and Black 50th Birthday

Truly Scrumptious #60 - things with wings
Flutterby Wednesday #160 - open challenge
Birthday Sundaes #16 - anything goes birthday card
Sentimental Sundays #62 - anything with a sentiment
Sparkles #15 - recipe - 1 x flower, 1 x image, 2 x ribbons
Dream Valley #10 - ribbon

Another request from my DD for a friend. The brief was Purple and black!!!

The backing paper is from Crafty Ann's polished stone brights collection stamped with a few butterflies.
Once again this lovely image - I do wish I could remember which CD she is from. I added some rather uneven sparkle to the black mat.
The butterfly embellie was die-cut from some wallpaper - the bottom one is black - the reverse of the paper - some bling for the body

I found a free template for the tags - not too difficult to cut out, although I'd rather have a tag die to use, LOL - the sentiment computer generated.

My first crinoline flower - I followed Linda - Funkie Junkie's  tut  but had to use a chalk inkpad to colour cos that was all I had available.  I should have wetted the flower diecuts to help keep the shape - but, hey ho, not bad for a first attempt .

Other stuff
Seam binding ribbon - My Wedding Party
Handmade stick pin

Thank you for stopping by :-)
Cheers me dears
