Allsorts #49 photo inspiration

Today I am on a scrap event all day, crafting with about 50 other adorable scrappers and cardmakers. So Mr Blogger better post this for me or I will feel very neglected and suspect he loves another...
The challenge at Allsorts this week is to be inspired by this picture below. Is that a yummy bracelet or what?I made a card using a Magnolia image, coloured with distress ink (mainly pumice stone) and a large spellbinder butterfly. DP is from a paper swap so I can't tell you much about it. The background to the image I can though - it's regular white paper stamped and distressed with victorian velvet. I adore the text stamp cause it's so versatile. All edges had their fair share of vintage photo distress ink =).
