The " Micing " on the cake !!

I made this card for my friend Jeanne who`s birthday it is today, the image is one of my faves from LOTV, I just love these little mieces to pieces !
I`ve coloured with distress inks, The punch is Martha Stewart - Doily Lace,the background paper is one I`ve had forever from K&Co, it`s good sometimes to have a rifle through your stash to see what stuff you haven`t used in ages ! I also found these little butterflies that I got from a bargain bin for silly money ages ago !

They didn`t have any antennae on them so I just bent a little flower stamen in half and added behind with a glue dot, then finished off with some SU pearls to give the body some dimension, they are actually metal butterflies but with a little bit of pressure I was able to bend the wings slightly to give some movement.

The flourish is Tim Holtz elegant flourish Sizzix die available from Sir Stampalot

I`ve just finished the image off with some prisma glitter to highlight the icing sugar and Glossy Accents to give the jam and jar some shine! OOh yummy it looks good enough to eat ! ( not sure I`d want it after a load of mice had been tromping all over it even though they are cute ! ) LOL

Got to get busy with some samples for Kay Rutter today, she sent me a beautiful parcel full of hundreds of every coloured flower you can imagine yesterday which was a lovely surprise, I`ve just got to find somewhere to put them all now !!
Thanks for looking in, bye for now and happy crafting xxx
