(Scraps of Elegance DT - 'Be Mine' kit
+ ARTastic February challenge)

Hello!  It is time for me to share with you my 4th and final DT project
created with the Scraps of Elegance 'Be Mine' kit and also inspired
by the February challenge on the ARTastic blog which you can see below.

The beautiful painting that follows is called Carousel Delight and is the artwork of Karen Pierce. It is the inspiration piece for the February ARTastic challenge with an added criteria of 'butterflies'.

I was immediately inspired by this artwork which I find so beautiful.
It made me think of childhood and the carefree and playful nature of children.

I decided to scrap photos of my friends' daughters and was inspired
by the colours of the painting, namely accented with lots of gold.

I added a lot of flowers just as on the artwork and some fun shiny embellishments,
some from the SOE kit and some from my own stash.

And I added one single butterfly that I embossed with golden brown shimmery powder.

These 2 little girls are such cuties, wouldn't you agree?
