DCM Flutterby.....

Well, its my first time setting the dare over at Daring Cardmakers this week and I choose the inspiration photo below and asked that you use the colours from the photo and include butterflies!


Here is my card:

I had an idea in my head how I wanted my card to go but, as usual, I started and it evolved in to something else. I decided to keep the card very light and keep the colours to a minimum.

I used a spellbinders die to create the frame and added various tea roses and rose buds to the centre, as well as adding a couple of diamante style pins. To complete the card, I added some pink satin pleat ribbon, white lace and raffia.

I hope everyone enjoys the challenge this week, I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with. So pop over to the Daring Cardmakers to check out the rest of my teamies cards.

I'd also like to enter the following challenges:
