spring fling challenge the whole thing!

you've seen little parts of it but now here it is

 my finished piece for

Therica's spring fling challenge 

 I used every thing she sent me in the box,

except one of the birds, for some reason one more, was a bird too far!

I used this a an opportunity to try out some more SRE.

I don't use silk ribbon much but I am trying to break out of that habit and spread it around a bit more.

I was contemplating dying he mushrooms with red and white spots. I may still do it, it would make that little corner pop a bit better.

go over to Therica's store to see the competition and let me know how I did? OK?

Happy mothers day!

To my Mom, who raised me as best she could all by herself.

thank you momma for teaching me there is more out there to learn every day and better things to do than sit at home.

Happy mothers day!

spring fling challenge#3

Tantalizing, no?

here is another piece of Therica's spring fling puzzle

here's a spot using 2 of the lace motifs
I "colored" in the flower with blue  overlapping fly stitch.  also shown are
a cloisonné butterfly, the snail charm and ribbon roses. I used bullion stitch to "color in the roses on the lace motif and beads to accent the ribbon.
how am I doing so far?
