" Exquisite "

Good afternoon all are you enjoying this glorious sunshine .. I know I am :)  It's a bit overcast today but still very humid. Ok ... I have something different to share with you today,not my usual style at all but I've sort of fell in love with the free images ( Thank You) that my lovely friend Coops has used from time to time ...(available here)   so on went  my thinking cap to see what I could come up with and here is my first example.
I will be entering my make into the following challenges............
1).. Simon Says Stamp ... Anything Goes
2).. Emerald Faeries #28 ... Flourishes/Swirls
3).. Fab n Funky #131 ... No Stamped Images
4).. Bearly Mine Challenge #45 ... Shaped Cards
5).. Crafts and Me #94 Anything Goes

I decided  to use the image to  make a calendars for 2013 as a gift and am already on another one at the moment. 
WOC flowers used and painted lightly with Shimmerz  (Angel Wings), Papermania  dp (Excuisite)Swirl (unknown) metal corners, pearls  and diecut butterflies all from stash, I applied Distress Ink(Old Paper) to the butterflies to give them the aged look.

Thats about it folks ...thanks for popping by, will see you again soon
