Something a bit different.....

Something a bit different this time, a frame to go in our bedroom.  This is our oldest dag, Tessa.  Going to do one of our puppy, Toby as well when I get another frame.
The papers are from Nitwits and the heart doily is from ebay. The swirl is something I bought in America a couple of years ago and never used...
The large butterfly is a Memory Box Die and the smaller butterflies are a Cheery Lynn die.
The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts.
The gems in the top right hand corner are from Ladybug Crafts Ink.






I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Anything Goes Challenge - Anything Goes
Sassy Cheryls - Anything Goes
Try it on Tuesday - Pampurred Pets
Always Crafting - Anything but a card
Make it Monday  - Anything Goes
