Tear it up.

It's week 2 of my Butterfly Challenge.
The theme is to use 3 design papers
with your butterfly/flies.
Here is my inspiration card for you.
Nothing like I was intending to make!
I had a lovely surprise parcel arrive in the post.
These gorgeous  glittered butterflies were sent to me
by my blogging friend Maureen as she was
having a massive de stash and thought I might like them.
There was also some lovely little hessian bags in the parcel too.
Thankyou  Maureen. I will enjoy using the rest of
the butterflies up on future challenges.
As the butterflies were on my desk I decided to see
if I had any papers to match.
I had a pile on the floor waiting to go back  in the paper drawer
so I searched through those first and these 3 caught my eye.
The stripe paper had a tear down one side and I was about
to trim it down when I had a light bulb moment and decided
to leave as it was and to tear the other pieces up to match  .
So I did.!
The lace bits were in the box  with the  oddment of ribbon
 so I used those up  too.
The sentiment is a freebie from here .

Incy Wincy Designs # Stripes.
Fan-Tastic Tuesday #61 Anything goes/twist add ribbon.
