Paper Blooms Challenge #3

This week's Paper Blooms challenge is the 5 B's--use a bloom, bling, butterfly, brown, and a sentiment/title beginning with the letter B on your project.

I altered a round coaster to create this monogrammed wall hanging. Those of you who follow my blog know that I had no trouble using a butterfly and LOTS of bling! I used a glittered chipboard letter, a rhinestone brad, and some tiny rhinestones on my butterfly.

So, ready to play along? Just link up your project on the Paper Blooms blog. You do NOT have to own any Paper Blooms to participate, although if you have some, we'd love to see them. You have until Tuesday night to upload your project. I can't wait to see what you all come up with!

Paper: Ski Slope dp (SU), polka dotted dp (unknown)
Accessories: flower (Paper Blooms), brad (Oriental Trading Co.), chipboard letter (Making Memories), Martha Stewart classic butterfly punch, ribbon (Hobby Lobby), rhinestones (The Paper Studio), coaster, hole punch, sanding block
