Doilies

The Butterfly Challenge this fortnight is 'Butterflies + D is for Doily'.  I'd been playing around with a few ideas in my head when we were away last weekend, then when we arrived home, a craft magazine was waiting for me with a doily embossing folder as the free gift!  
I die-cut a Spellbinders 'Butterfly Circles' shape, which I attached with foam tape.  The Stampin' Up butterfly is cut in twice, the bottom one in the same purple as the background but you can't really see it in the photgraph.  The top butterfly is embossed with a Swiss Dots embossing folder and glued just down the middle so the wings stand out.  Tiny purple pearls finished off my butterfly.

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:

    1. I don't think so, Veerle. It's the free gift with the current Quick Cards Made Easy magazine. It came with a teacup stamp and sentiment too. xx
