50th Anniversary Canvas

Thanks for dropping by. My inlaws' 50th Anniversary canvas is very nearly ready now, I just need to add a few finishing touches.

I decided to make the background like old wallpaper, to fit in with the decor of their house.  This one is a Laura Ashley scrapbook paper.
It's very understated though and I wouldn't say Laura Ashley was my style but when giving gifts I think its important to consider the receipient(s).
I liked adding the butterflies which were punched using a Docrafts 3d butterfly punch using an old book:
I will be adding bling (as in sparkly studs) to their bodies and to make antenae.
The use of decorative photo corners compliment the old style feel of the canvas. 

Just to say, I will be having the weekend off from blogging (& crafting!) as I am going to be at my inlaws for their celebration party and they don't have internet access! :-O

Enjoy your weekend and please don't forget
to come back and join me on Monday,

Thats really beautiful, it's sometimes hard to make for others to their tastes rather than yours. I love that though it's very me! I bet they will be delighted with it.
