Butterfly Garden

Good Morning Crafty Friends,

Kath and I had a good crafting play day yesterday.

Today I am sharing with you what I created last week at Kath's.

On our last trip to Ikea earlier in the year Kath bought us a Cloche which we decorated.

I went for a garden theme using flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and butterflies.

As you can see from the photograph, I have added terracotta pots and filled with different shades of purple flowers.

Using florist wire and tape I added the butterflies so they stood proud of the pot which I put paper clay inside which helped me position the flowers and butterflies. 

This photograph shows the glass dome over the arrangement.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

We Love 2 Create #7 - AG Mixed Media
Altered Eclectics - AG Mixed Media
Rhedds Creative Spirit - AG Mixed Media
Crafter's Castle #4 - AG optional Dimentional

Many thanks for visiting today!
Happy Crafting!
