This is the layout I made for this months All That Flutter Challenge, which is a layout with something fluttery on it..e.g. butterflies, bird, fairies, etc
Click HERE to enter this challenge.


For this layout I used the American Crafts Speciality Burlap piece, I cut a heart shape out of the middle and placed a piece of the Prima Rossibelle paper behind it.


I fussy cut some flowers from the papers and also used flowers from the Flower add on Kit. 
My fluttering element is the Butterfly silhouettes from the Embellishment add on Kit, I coloured them with black ink and added liquid pearls to the centre.

You Are the Sunshine of my Life


And my final layout for the kit is one of my favourites, I used the brown and black  papers and embellishments in this kit to make a more grungy layout.


I used some brown distress ink with my Tim Holtz stripe stencil to all extra interest to the background, along with a little random stamping.


I used the black Petaloo flowers from the Flower add on kit to embellish and paired these with some brown flowers from my stash.


There was lots of gorgeous gems in this kit, I've used the Prima trim which I cut into pieces, the Prima Druzy Stones and the DIY gold enamel drops.
I coloured the Dusty Attic Hanging Bulb chipboard pieces in brown distress ink.
