Design Seeds Picture Inspiration.

We have a colour inspiration challenge at Less is More this week. There are so many wonderful images on the Design Seeds site that it makes choosing a starting point difficult.
Today is my friend Sarah's, (one of  the LIM designers), birthday so happy birthday to her!
Cheers!
For this one I coloured the back of the vellum after stamping and embossing with fine detail white embossing powder. The butterflies were simply cut out and attached to the background strip. The sentiment die is from Simon Says Stamp. The leaves are Memory Box (I think).

This is the inspiration pic.
This is a retired two step stamp from Stampin' Up. I love the casual feel of these stamps... also good for watercolouring,  but I chose to merely stamp this time!
I should be home from my travels later today so hopefully I shall manage to get around to see  a few LIM entries!
Enjoy your weekend.
