My competition entry for Green Tara

Green Tara is an Aussie wholesaler of one of my fave things...paper flowers, and currently they are having a competition where you can win a basket of their beautiful flowers just by creating a piece of art that uses some of their products. I am really pleased with how this turned out...I love the white doodling on the black cardstock. My skeleton leaves have all been embossed with an antique gold embossing powder. The colour of the blooms are a mix of sprays and spritz (Lindy Stamp Gang of course!!!). The butterfly was created by layering halved flowers and skeleton leaves.
The one little piece of chipboard you can see on the side of the photograph is my last piece of chipboard that Andrew from Scrapmatts gave me at Melbourne Paperific. I think it totally finished the entire look of the piece.
