Just for fun challenge

Yes another challenge but not really a challenge at all . While I was out blog hopping yesterday I came across a lovely site which has weekly challenges  the whole purpose of this particular site is to participate in their challenges just for the fun of it, no prizes no gimmicks just good honest to goodness fun !

I like the idea of this as I am a novice only been crafting for three months and its a huge learning curve for me. I am constantly amazed at all of the techniques there are , what with bubble wrap, salt and shaving foam ! I can't keep up.

So am entering this challenge with the the name of oh for the wings of a bug

I used Crafty Individuals backing paper ( again ) Three layers of embossing  with SU white embossing powder using little flower jumbo wheel stamp, my butterfly was cut with my Silhouette stamped with CI script stamp and I applied Ranger distress ink to the edges Just for the fun of it.
