Flying Butterflies !!

 Happy Bank Holiday Monday.......just to remind you that the next bank holiday will be Christmas Day !!  - 17 Mondays time will be the week leading up to the big day !!  Time to start making Christmas Cards !!! LOL !!!!

Having said that, here is a summery, pastel shaded, butterfly card.

I have stitched this onto PMD linen card, in variegated threads of pink, blue, silver & bronze.

The background embossed section is also on PMD linen card using an XCut embossing folder which I have then brushed over with distress ink using a shaving brush (my preferred method as I tend to get streaks and lines using anything else).
The actual stitched piece has been mounted onto pale blue mirri card. I have also used a pale pink mirri card for the floral corner (Tonic envelope die). I have added turquoise gems across the corner piece. The sentiment is from Anna Marie Designs across some pink ric-rac ribbon.
Same photo only on different background as sometimes pale cards don't show up that well.
