Firefly Frenzy

Good day everyone and welcome to another blog post, this time for the

The theme for this week selected by our team mate Shirley is 1, 2,  3
1 - image
2 - design papers
3 - embellishments

We are sponsored by the fabulous

I've used a rubber stamp from Inky Impressions called Nicholas Firefly Frenzy and think he is the perfect image for a young boy who is into bugs...well aren't they all!  I just hope he doesn't mind the pink flower!   My three embellishments are: buttons, banner and fishtail.
I've been hoarding this paper pad. The photo did not pick it up but the flower and grass border on the bottom are actually spot varnished making it very glossy - looks great irl.

Coloured with Copics
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
DP - TPC Studio, Bugs and Butterflies
Buttons - Basic Grey and Jenni Bowlin Vintage Style 
Fishtail Die - Die-namics
Pennant created using smallest die in the Spellbinders Nested Pennants
Twine from a local bakeshop

Entering the following challenges:
