All a Flutter ............


Today's card is a combination of two challenges. Card Patterns have a wonderful sketch and at SU-Only this week is In Celebration of Butterflies!

Here's the sketch -

And my card -



I picked up a pack of paper doilies from a cheap store quite a while ago now and they've sat in my draw unused ever since. As soon as I seen the sketch I knew that they would be perfect for my card. They are very white so I used a dauber with crumb cake ink to lightly colour it and then sponged early espresso ink around the edges. Although it doesn't show up in the photo, I've also sprayed it with champagne glimmer mist to give  it a beautiful little sparkle.

Thanks for stopping by!
