Gingham and Spots (take two...)

The Shabby Tearoom 'Gingham / Spots' (I got my colours wrong on the last one, doh!)
Simon Says Stamp and Show 'Show Some Metal'

And yes, I've used another one of those butterflies! I think they are fab (they are actually wedding decs from M&S) but I'd had the idea to use this for the Shabby Tearoom's gingham and spots challenge, then realised I'd used the wrong colours so had another go lol. I used stamens for the and pearls to decorate it.

Aside from the butterfly, I've layered up the doilies and used another one of those yummy roses from the Ribbon Reel. Lace, velevet ribbon and of course gingham ribbons give some nice textures.
I finshed off with a tissue paper ribbon with metal embellishment in the centre and made a little felt coil in the middle (just cut some with pinking shears and rolled it up)
