Brassed Off

Hope you are all enjoying your Good Friday and have plenty of sunshine. A bit windy here today but sun is shining brightly.
Flutter By Wednesday #52 theme is Butterflies or Fairies and as I love them equally I have been greedy and used both.



I decided to dust off my neglected brass stencils and have used one by Joy for the centre and a Marianne Design for the corners, decoupage is by Caron Vinson and the cutie little butterfly embellishments were a snip at the Range.
Sorry for bad piccie but between the wind and sunshine this is the best I can do.
