Lacy flowers & butterfly

Hi everyone, I've been having fun playing with watercolour paints, and practicing what I've learned in  the online Craftsy watercolor course that Deepti is holding.
I have to get up really early so that our internet is fast enough but it's been well worth it!

I'm linking up to these challenges:

Scrapbook Boutique has this gorgeous inspiration pic.
Enter Our Challenge - starts 10th each month

I was inspired by the pinks and the white lacy icing and doily.

Seize the Birthday has an anything goes theme with the optional topping of border punches or die cuts.

At Cuttlebug Mania, the theme is no squares and you need to use a manual machine like a Big Shot or Cuttlebug.
