Happy birthday Ashleigh

I'm running a bit behind in my blogs. It was Ashleigh's 4th birthday yesterday, Happy birthday. This is what I created for her. A photo frame to go her wall.
A closer picture of the butterflies.
I have used the beautiful Tea Party DSP to cover the frame, then used the Great Friends Stamp Set for the butterflies. The butterflies are white embossed and then sponged with Almost Amethyst ink, I think it makes the butterflies stand out a bit more.

Now I'm going to have to make one for my girls.
