Sidestepped and distressed

Challenges:
Simon Says:bingo/multifold, punches,diecuts, twine (and brads, fabric and flowers)
Frosted Designs:fabric
Pixie Cottage:someone special
Little Miss Muffett:anything goes
Charismas:anything goes
Simply Create Too:shape it up
Saturday Challenge:anything goes

This image is from Free Vintage Digis, if you havent checked them out, you really should. I stamped Live the life you imagined from Tim Holtz and embossed it with distress embossing powder. I stamped Delight in the small things from Studio G in walnut distress ink. I added plenty of pearls. You can see in the first pic there are no pearls on the butterfly, then I decided to add them. The birds, butterfly punches and metal pieces are from K and Company. I added some twine to the sentiment that was recycled from Christmas present. 
This is for my wonderful sister in law, she encourages me to go further and further with my crafting. Love ya EO.
