Baby Shower Centerpiece

Hello all! I hope you had a great weekend! I wanted to show you what I have been working on, and finally finished! I used my New Arrival cartridge for the first time, and LOVE what I came up with! I hope you like it as much as I do!
I cut the umbrella at 6 inches, feet at 5 1/2 inches, diaper pins at 4 inches, and butterflies at 2 1/2 inches. I then cut them all using the flip function too, so I could adhere them back to back.

I used stickles, SU ribbon, lace, liquid pearls, and SU flat backed pearls to dress up this beauty. I used hot glue to adhere most of the cuts to bamboo skewers and the basket. I used clear stretchy string from Wal-Mart that I bought in the jewelry section, and used that to string the butterflies from the umbrella to make it look like they are flying!

I had a large container of pink prima flowers that I thought matched this centerpiece perfectly. So, I used them to look like they were growing under the umbrella.

Please let me know what you think!

Thanks for looking!
