Just For Fun First Ever Challenge!!! Anything Goes!

Well, some fabby news this morning!!! I have been chosen to be part of the Design Team for the brand new 'Just For Fun' Challenge Blog by the very talented Elaine Rayworth.

Main Just For Fun Challenge Blog 
Today is the very first challenge and to get you started its an 'Anything Goes'. Hopefully you will pop over to the blog and see what the team have created to get your inspiration flowing we have an immensly talented group of ladies with some fabulous projects to show you.

Here is mine to start you off! I decided not to make a card but to alter a tin can that had been sitting on my craft desks for months! I have used the gorgeous Craftwork Cards 'Time Flies' Collection to do so.
Sit back and relax as there are lots of photos!

The Collection includes 8x8 papers, die cut butterflies and flowers, paper ribbons, bows and sentiments. I used some lavender seam binding ribbon around the top and to make a bow. The edges of the butterflies and flowers that I have layered up were tinted using Tim Holtz Milled Lavender Distress Ink.

 I've added some liquid pearls on the tags and butterflies in Platinum.
 I covered some tags and tickets in the gorgeous papers.
 I've also added some Platinum Stickles to the edges of the flowers and butterflies.

I hope you have enjoyed my project, now let me see yours by joining in the challenge at Just For Fun!
Thanks for looking!
