A Very Special Challenge

After what seems like forever I am finally posting my art for the
Grungy Monday Challenge #5
happening over at Linda's blog Studio L3.
A New Dimension!

Im also going to enter this into the Challenge at
Simon Says Stamp and Show where the challenge is
Anything Goes!

I used this challenge to create a very special art gift for a very special friend.

As you can see above I used 2 of Tim's Mover and Shaper dies, Dream and Mini Butterflies
I inked and pearl misted the butterflies and stamped them with gold French text. Added some great shiny bling trim to the bottom.

I outlined the whole piece in tissue tape and used a gold key to get my "dimension" needed for this challenge. And as you can see added a gold paint dabber crown cut from Tim's Crown and Fleur Mover and Shaper.

For the hanger I used some thin ribbon and an Ideology clasp at the top.

And as you can see its a Birthday piece for
Gloria Alexander
our List Mom over at All Things Tim list on Yahoo.
I hope she likes it. Her birthday is on 5/21 so help me in wishing her a
Happy Birthday this month.
