Alter a notebook, or Floral with Aurora Wings.

Hello all,
Well here I am with a new post and for a new DT too!
The lovely Laura asked me if I wanted to join the Digi Galore DT, another monthly challenge, so I said yes.  Well it would be rude not to wouldn't it?? Lol
So the challenge for May is:
(Or of course you could combine the two like I did!)
So our fabulous sponsor for this challenge is:
and the prize is a $15 voucher to spend in Mitzi's wonderful store.
So on to my creation for this challenge:
As I said I have combined the two themes and altered a notebook with a floral image.
I used Orchid Corner on my project.
Digital Stamp - Instant Download - Orchid Corner - Elegantly Arranged Floral Corner - Floral Line Art for Cards & Crafts by Mitzi Sato-Wiuff
Just such a gorgeous image.
And here is what I did with it.
Looking at it now I think I could have afforded to print it a bit bigger, but hey ho!
The image is coloured with my Polychromo pencils and then cut out - now that's character building for you! I have used 11 different coloured pencils to colour this in!!
The gorgeous die cut butterfly is from Samaflora on Facebook who also makes the most gorgeous flowers.
The strips of beads, delicate lemon lace............... 
..........& this gorgeous green lace are all from Brenda Exeter on Facebook who sells oodles of lovely lace and embellies - well worth a look I can tell you!
The book I have decorated is a little lined notebook from That Craft Place on FB. Another great place to shop, great service and lovely people. (You will have to ask to join if you are not a member already as it is a closed group - just say I sent you!! Lol)
So there you go my friends, a lacey floral altered notebook!
Can't wait to see what you all come up with.
