New Start

A dear friend has recently moved home. I have wanted to share this before but of course needed to wait until it was recieved or lose the surprise.
It was made entirely for this person. Incorporating bits of her and going forward into a new life. If you know this person all the elements would make sense and I'm pleased to say she was happy with it.

For the main image, I have used two digi images from Delicious Doodles. The skull is actually the poinsettia skull slipped in behind the rose corner. These were both coloured using promarkers, before decoupaging different layers for the rose. With a bit of DI to "age" the white bits.

The butterfly panel is pink/black core-dinations. Embossed and sanded with one corner pinned down with a sparkly brad from stash. The lace is older than I am. A bundle given to me over 30 years ago. The torn papers and little journey elements recieved in a RAK.
The black velvet ribbon was pleated and stuck down. With 3 different types of black ribbon along the bottom of the butterfly panel.

All distressed and stuck onto pink then black card base and finished off with some black gems for that bit of bling.

There are a couple of challenges that I would like to enter this into
