Speed Craft Challenge 8 - Butterflies

Hi everyone
Well life is hectic here at the moment which is why I have been missing for over a week, December is never a good month for me to indulge in my crafty antics. So if you are like me and are pushed for time this is the perfect challenge for you over at Speed Craft Challenge. You just need to spend no more than 15 mins to create your project following our current theme which for this fortnight is
We love to see any type of project so long as it is completed in 15 mins or less.
Here is my DT piece for this theme and this time I have made a card.
I started by gathering all I needed together prior to starting my timer
Using Tims Alterations layered butterfly die, one layer I have gone over the embossed detail with a white wax crayon to resist the Dylusions sprays then layered them up
popping through the back layer is music printed paper again sprayed with Dylusions. the butterfly has then been finished off with a Tim Holtz game spinner. The "Use your Wings" is from Dina Wakely scribbly insects set.
All finished with very little time left, infact only seconds to go......Phew!!!
There is some fabulous inspiration by my teamies Here so why not pop over and come and join in with all we'd love to see you there.
thanks for stopping by I really appreciate you doing so.
