Quilling and Card Pattern #99

Greetings folk, today is going to be a quick post - the dreaded ironing is calling :-), never mind various other domestic chores ...

I made the quilled elements of this card for another project, but the colours were not 'right', so they got saved for what turned out to be this card.
The flowers were mounted onto a dotted circle cut and embossed with a Spellbinders die and sponged with Tsukineko Pearlescent Lavender ink.

This was then mounted onto the base which had been designed using the Card Patterns challenge for this week, and includes some lace and ribbon.
A quilled butterfly was added along with some mauve rhinestones on the wings and in the corners.  The sentiment was stamped in violet ink and clear embossed.

That's it folks, as a certain cartoon bunny would say :-)

P.S.  Remember to keep February the 23rd free for the cake decorating Party - it is going to be soooo  much fun, and we will not over eat, as it will all be eye-candy :-)  How sweet is that!!

  Thanks for visiting, and may your day be blessed.

Beautiful. Are the leaves/flowers in the background a paper or stamp? They look so delicate and pretty.
