The Paper Shelter Challenge 7 - Inspired By.... Circle Side Step

Oops I am so late posting this today had a mare of a day..... ANYWAYS....

This weeks challenge at The Paper Shelter gives you the chance to show everyone what or who inspires you. There are lots and lots of mega talented people who out there who make me go wow! when I look at their work so I had plenty of scope for inspiration. As I nearly always make a 6" square card I thought I would have a look around to see who could expire me to make something different.
I came accross this amazing lady Marlena and her Paper Papillon blog . Her circle side step card is gorgeous so I tried to have a go. I got into a bit of a pickle at one point but sorta got there in the end Ha Ha!

I have used Bee Bear  and coloured him with Promarkers and added stickles to his wings.

The design papers are fom a disney scrap kit I bought ages ago
I cut and shaped the flowers from the same papers
 die cut butterfly had been inked to colour  match and I made some swirly pattens with stickles on the wings
I went overboards with the gems lol
Can't remember who the ribbon is from it may be Papermania?
 Big Hugs sentiment is from Cuddly Buddly

Remember if you use a Paper Shelter image you are in with a chance if winning a prize
you gotta be in it to win it!!
