I did something a bit different with this pretty Vivienne Butterfly.

I added a Wild Orchid Crafts bloom and some pearly spray things for antennae which you can only just about see!!

The bow is made from 15mm gingham from The Ribbon Girl and I added a tiny heart button which I found in my stash.

The inside is decorated to match the front which can only mean one thing!!

It’s looking for a new home and is now on sale on ebay – you can see it here.
