A couple of the challenges this week were 'Anything Goes',so I decided to splash out and play a little.  I had bought these letters at Christmas.  My original hope was to do 'NOEL', but I could get the N or O, I could however get the E and L. Given that is my name I decided I would grab the letters anyway.  

With this weeks challenges I thought it was a good time to do something with them.

This is my first take on this type of thing, I am happy with where they are now, but feel like maybe I can do more.  So I consider them Finished now, but am not ruling out a revisit later.

Love the Butterfly die, it is awesome! (Currently on loan from Pam, Thanks Pam!!!)

The papers are October Afternoon - Thrift Shop, the paint used was Jo Sonya.  And this flowers was made with fabric and Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers die.

I love, love love this heart, so I wanted to keep it simple and let it be the focal.  The lace is SU. And this ribbon used n the project is Seam Binding, died with Distress Stain.

The ribbon used to tie the floral bunch is SU Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding. ( I had fun splashing paint and smearing it here or there)
