DCM 'The Thrill Of It All'

It's Friday and time for another challenge over at Daring Cardmakers.  It's Leo's turn to set the dare the challenge and she would like you to incorporate some kind of frill on your card. 

It could be a frilly embellishment or background or maybe a stamp you have that would work. Anything that's fun and frilly! 

Here's my card.....

I already knew that I would do a ribbon frill / pleat of some kind as soon as I saw this challenge.  I bought some new papers recently so had a look through to see what caught my eye and found some beautiful MME Meadow papers.  I loved the fresh spring colour and added a white layer to add some contrast between the patterned paper.  

To keep this crisp and clean look, I printed a butterfly sentiment from Pink Petticoat.  The butterflies are cut with my PTI die using the same Meadow papers.  

After playing around with the layout for a little while, I decided to add my frill / pleat ribbon to the bottom of the card and layer the butterflies fluttering from it.  To finish I added some pearl hearts to the centre of each butterfly.

Don't forget to checkout the rest of the Design Team's creative frilly cards and also welcome our new Guest Designer, Beckie!
