A little bit of Lacy Sunshine and a few flowers

Hi all
Edited: OMG - I can't believe this didn't post!! Scheduled it for yesterday morning, no power last night, no hot water, electric or heating and come to check tonight and find it didn't post!! Grrrrrrr.
Time once again for a new challenge at Through the Purple Haze.
This time we are proud to be sponsored by 
Our theme this week is:
Now that has got to be a really easy challenge hasn't it??

So for my project this week I have used:
Butterfly Enchantress which you can find here.
And here is what I did with her.
I bought some little plain bags a couple of weeks ago and so I thought I would decorate one of those.
So I used a shaving foam background as the base and then added all the components on top of that.
The image is coloured with my Spectrum Noir pencils for a change and I am really pleased with how it turned out.  I brushed around the edges of the card with Distress inks, Bundled Sage and Squeezed Lemonade so it didn't look too stark against the background.
I have used some fabulous new lace that I have just bought, from a lovely lady called Brenda Exeter on Facebook.  She has got some absolutely gorgeous goodies, you really should go take a look. Visit her here and say Dawn sent you.
To finish the bag off I have added some flowers in complimentary colours all from my stash.
So there you go folks, my little bit of Lacy Sunshine and a few flowers.
Can't wait to see what you all come up with.
Thanks for stopping by and remember to leave me a comment so I know you called.
