Butterfly and flowers Scrapbook page...and a new DT for me!!! Yay!!!

 Hi folks! Hope you are fine an dandy.  It's been all quiet on the blogging front for me as I have been busy busy crafting, working and enjoying family & friends time..... making memories and taking lots of photos for future scrapbook pages :)  I have an exciting announcement to make.......  I have been invited to join the Spectrum Noir TV Show Design Team.  Yay!!!
 The page I am sharing today is one of the samples that I made for Sara Davies to take to America for her Home Shopping Network Show earlier this month.  I took an 8"x 8" piece of Kraft card and stamped the background with the tiny flower cluster from the Always Floral Little bit Sketchy stamp set with Versamark to create the subtle watermark look.  I then popped a tiny bit of glitter in the centre of each flower.  I punched the photomat with my favourite EK Sucess boarder punch.  I also added some ribbon to the frame to add more texture.
The flowers I stamped and embossed onto coloured vellum.  I cut these out and gently shaped them before adhereing.  I stamped the vines and leaves onto Kraft card and coloured with the Spectrum Noir colouring pencils before cutting out; gently shaping and adhering to the layout.  I added brown gems to the centre of the flowers. The butterfly is made in the same way as the vines, but this time I added brown glitter (you can really see it in the middle picture.  Then I added, my signature, funky foam die cut letters for a title that simply says 'Isabelle'  I used the Die'sire lowercase alphabet die set and because I haven't got the Upper case set yet, I chopped down the  'H' in the Die'sire 'Happy Birthday' sentiment to create my capital 'I'. I finished off the page by adding a large bow.
I'm going to have to make another one of these to add to my own collection as I love it so much :)
Ciao for now!
