Lace Butterfly

Hello crafters. Hope all is well.

I love butterflies and the one on today's card is I think my favourite so far.  I've wanted to do this pale colour combo for a while and was inspired by a design on the Tonic Blog. I've used some lovely Crafters Comp. pearlescent cardstock which gives it a subtle sheen.


Items used:

Tonic Patterned Panel Budding Vine and Sentiment die (from Sew Pretty Circle Frame)
Sue Wilson Lace Butterfly
J. Sheen butterfly flourish
MFT Cross stitch ovals
Tonic border punch (I've used flowers from the waste on the sentiment)
pearls and glitter glue

Challenges:

My Time To Craft #343 no designer papers
Polkadoodles #15 AG
