Girl with the Red Balloon

Hello all hope you are all having a wonderful and relaxing weekend. I have for you today your daily dose of Doilies, Flourishes and Flowers.. You got it! My Cheery Lynn Inspiration
Our theme and challenge starting tomorrow over on  Cheery Lynn Challenge Blog is
"Think Spring"
You must use a Cheery Lynn Die to enter into the competition, the prize is $ 20 coupon to spend on dies in the Cheery Lynn Store

In Cheery Lynn's last die Release they brought out some cute mini labels.  These labels worked out brilliantly of a banner.  I strung them together with a little bakers twine and added some of the mini butterflies which I have inked with faded jeans Distress inks.  You can't see the sheen very well on the photo as they have been sprayed with some glimmer mist too. 

Here is a close up view of the other butterflies that I have used and that gorgeous Victorian Picket Fence.  For the fence I painted with Tim Holtz Picket Fence crackle paint, distressed with a small amount of Antique Linen distress ink.  The grass at the bottom just adds to the effect.. 

On the other side of the card I used Judy's blooms to create a small flower which I have shaped using a large embossing tool. To the centre I added stamens from Build a Flower #3. You can just make out the twirly things coming up from the flower they were make using the quilling strip die. Check the bottom of this post for the links to all products used to create my card.

Other products I have used are 
Coredination card stock

Here's a close up of the image I used from Saturated Canary called Balloon Wishes.  In the picture below you can also see the hearts boarder that I used.  I die cut it first then ran it through a crimping machine a few times then distressed using DI's
