Well the challenge this week is a recipe! - pearls, swirls, ribbon and lace!! now I usually use a grand old heeping of various of these but it was real fun putting them all together!!
As usual a little peek at the inside!

I tried to go for something a little different, making the background black and white and colouring Tilda in subtle colours to match the DP and embellies!! then I tried to make the butterfly "pop" by colouring it in a much for vibrant tone and adding some stardust stickles!!

V0000, 00.
