Deep Ocean Challenge DT - Butterflies

 Well, I am extremely late with this post but I thought I would use it to remind you that you still have a few more days left to enter our challenge at Deep Ocean Challenge.  Our theme is Butterflies - one of my favourite things!  I have decorated a Kaisercraft Beyond The Page Ribbon holder for my craft room using Kaisercraft paints and papers.  The photo above is the top of it - it's hard to photograph as it is so large.
 This is the front view which I have painted only - would have been a nightmare papering with all those holes!
 The gorgeous chipboard swirl is from Bo Bunny and I have added some little metal filigree butterflies from The Hobby House which I painted with white acrylic paint.
 I have added a selection of flowers from my stash.  The large one is from Prima, the duck egg blue resin rose is from Kaisercraft, the gorgeous daisy was a gift from my lovely friend Louise, the white rosebud I'm not sure LOL and the rest are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at Deep Ocean Challenge!  Thanks for looking! x
