It's time for Team B to show off their creativity this week and the challenge is something for your Mum, Sister, Aunt, Daughter, Niece - actually any special female in your life really!

I did wonder if I would get this posted in time as I had quite a lot of problems along the way!

Thought I'd colour the image and do a cream on cream card.  Tried colouring a background which started OK and then I went a bit mad and absolutely hated - so had the job of cutting out the image  - thought I'd leave a border around the image which would be easier to cut out - No - didn't like that either so had to go for the trickier cut - which I think turned out OK as my eyes aren't what they should be but haven't plucked up the courage to go to the Opticians.

Next I wanted to incorporate some dies using my cricut having just got it out of the cupboard after it had been on vacation practically all the time I've had it!  Managed to download Craftroom to plot out where I wanted the dies and the sizes.  Tick - this part went to plan.

Well I played around with bits and pieces for hours and did not come up with one layout I liked which is when I gave up and went for backing papers.  Again I played around with the layout not complete happy with outcome.  Eventually after many hours I settled on the above.

I love the quote which is said to be a quote from Sophia Loren.  I also added a note with a butterfly on as a personal message.
