Butterflies on Lace, and Quilting

 Welcome

I was going through a dollar bag of 'bits' that I picked up at a craft display and sales day some months ago, and came across this snippet of (machine made) lace. I trimmed and tidied it up and made it the center piece of this card.


The purple card was embossed with a We R Memory Keepers geometric folder.
The butterflies were cut with a M/B Pippi Die from snippets of pink glitter card



The card was finished with a fish-tail banner with the greeting heat embossed on it, 
and a piece of pink ribbon under it.

I love this beautiful card. The lacy piece is so striking with the sparkly pink butterflies and embossed purple paper. Isn't it fun to find a great piece in a scrap bag that had been forgotten? I found you from your comments on Lin's site. I visited New Zealand in November and loved it. The people are so, so nice and the country is so lush and beautiful. Enjoy your day!

Brilliant creative idea to use this pretty lace motif as the centerpiece of this lovely card. Love the glittery butterflies that are flitting around, and the 3D die looks like quilting behind the lace. Congrats on a super find. Wishing you a wonderful 2018, filled with things that make you happy. TFS & appreciate all your sweet comments during 2017. Hugs
