Vintage ribbon and lace butterflies

Well here I am - not sure how I am feeling today

But will keep it Simple and Short today.

Here is a card I was working on yesterday - in between everything that was going on.

The challenge was to use ribbon and lace - lovely.

I used a Little Claire Butterfly topper and mounted onto purple card

Then I mounted a rather nice backing paper onto purple card and mounted a butterfly 
ribbon from Crafty Ribbons, with red tape to the corner. 

Bottom added some very old white lace.

Mounted the topper on an angle onto the ribbon and lace background. 

Added pearl drops to the edges 

And made a lace ribbon with some antique / vintage lace I have, using 3D gel to mount
that at the bottom of the butterfly topper. 

Final use marker pen, yes purple to colour the edge of the card blank.

I think the ribbon and lace make this card look rather vintage.... 
I was very lucky to be given a large bundle of old lace a little while back.

I would like to enter it for the following


Thank you for popping over to see me. 

Hope you have a good day.


I did not sleep well ...  wont go into it but will try to put the 
"situation" behind me. 

All to do with asking where is my 
parcel on that Social net work....and the words that came back 
were, in my opinion, unacceptable. 

This too shall is not life or death... so 
I must move on .... 

Glad to say my parcel from DPD is schedule to arrive today :) 

so that is not lost. 

Bye for now and enjoy
