Good Thursday morning. Welcome to the Impression Obsession design team challenge.  Our challenge today is to make anything of our choice.  I love using  frames to highlight a sentiment and adding some type of floral or foliage embellishment. 

For my project today I used the Precious Treasure sentiment, Shaker Circle Frames, Branch Die, Butterflies and the pine sprig from the Twig Wreath.

I know I’ve said this many times but I love the contrast of red and olive green with white. I used a simple green patterned paper and red trim for the base. I created a double matted frame and attached to the circle frame to create a triple matting for the sentiment.  I mounted the frame over the sentiment and then mounted to the base with mounting tape.

I cut two sets of branches, scored them on a mat lightly with my stylus and attached them to the frame with glossy accents. I cut two butterflies layering one over the other, attached them with glossy accents, popped up the wings with rolled up glue dots and attached them over the foliage with glossy accents. I added pine sprigs and  tiny white flowers to soften the arrangement.
