Strut your cuts Challenge 9

Just in the nick of is my entry
Again lots of fun but it took forever and same again I did not know when enough was enough!
Also I showed my boys and both of them clearly did not like it but were very polite about how they told me!!
However, I do and thats all that matters!!
The cone (tie the knot) is cut at 7 inches and the trim (elegant cakes) at 1 inch. The butterflies are spellbinders - two layers and embossed then brilliance gold edged and beneath, flowers altered with Tims distress ink and buttons added.
The print is from a vintage print site and relates to the Easter theme as is the butterflies and the little note. I have learnty that butterflies are symbolic of Easter and enjoyed reading more of this in the form of poems etc. It was interesting.

 Couldn't decide if the ribbon on the base was too much so I took it off...then put it back!
I love the trim and the colours.
Thanks for looking

This is gorgeous! You could put some pretty spring silk flowers in it for a decoration after Easter.
