Hello bloggers, hope you are all well..

Today's my Nan's birthday, she would of been 76 today.. 
Its been nearly 2 years since she passed away, can't believe it has been that long, we all miss her very very much and think about her every day..

Instead of making a card this year I wanted make something small that could be tied around the vases next to her memorial. We have a big family so there are always stacks of beautiful flowers for her (my nan really loved her flowers lol).. This is what I came up with:

In my craft stash I had an old wooden butterfly (I have no idea where I got it).
So I inked it with distress ink and sprayed with a metallic mist (sorry couldn't get it to show in pics).
Then I added flowers from WOC.. Pearl hearts, banner, peel off sentiment and ribbon from my stash.

Hope you like it, I'm sure my nan would of..

I'm entering this into the following challenges
B for butterfly, blooms, and banner...

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Have a Good Friday.
Be back later with a card.

Hugs Kelly x
