Embrace life...FTTC167 55

Hi there! Welcome to an all new Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge! Thanks to all who joined along with last week's challenge :) This week, Cindy is our wonderful hostess and she is challenging us to "add a butterfly" to our project. 
 I chose to feature the pretty butterfly image from Butterflies and Blossoms along with images from 3 other stamp sets. I love that Flourishes images are so easy to mix and match, providing countless ways to create with them!
The beautiful floral embossed image that frames the butterfly is from Love and Lace, the sentiment is from Gerber Daisies.
and the sweet sentiment tag was made using a sentiment from Tiny Flowers and Tags and was cut using a die from Tailor-Made Classic Tags die set.
I missed the deadline but for sketch inspiration, I played along with the current Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge.

Thanks so much for visiting! Please be sure to visit the Flourishes blog for complete details and for some fabulous inspiration visit our May Guest Designer: Marie Oberg and the entire DT: HeatherSilkeMakikoCindyBeateAmanda

Supplies Used not mentioned:
Dies: Spellbinders Nested Lacey Pennants, Lacey Circles, Grand Calibur
Patterned Paper and flower: Prima
