Butterflies and lace

Well it seems that some people have been having a few problems with blogger refusing to upload photos but touch wood he seems to be playing nicely for me so I am giving you the heads up on this week's challenge at Totally Gorjuss which is Lace and we are sponsored by Heathers Hobbie Haven. I've used a lovely butterfly stamp from Little Claire which has been coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers with Sakura pens for highlights. The papers are some old Forever Friends from my must use up pile which doesn't seem to be getting any more smaller. The pink strip across the middle is Henbury Lane punched with an MS border punch. I've used a MS rose leaf punch, flowers from Wild Orchid, MS punched butterflies and Kars wooden butterfly which I heat embossed. I used WOW glitter embossing powder but it hasn't come out as shiny and sparkly as I would like. I couldn't heat it any more or the wood starts to brown. I added some Sakura glaze highlights. Oh and not forgetting the all important lace of course!
Challenges:

Housework and washing done, let's ignore the ironing pile, time for lunch and then a crafting afternoon.
