Lace Butterfly.

It's week 4 of my current Butterfly Challenge.
The theme is Summertime Butterflies.
Something a little  bit different for your inspiration.
 I made  this for  a swap quite a while ago now but never shown.
I embossed the white  card  using Sizzix 'Flourish Floral'
Coloured very lightly  using chalks in pastel pink and green.
The butterfly was created using Sizzix die 656512 cut from pale pink card.
I covered with a piece of old lace cut to the  same shape.
Body was created by  folding a tiny piece of lace into a roll and stitching on 4 small beads .
Head and antenna  were wet glued and sprinkled with pink glitter.
Small button attached to flower
 and lastly  a strip of pink ribbon added to the side .
Linking to:
Pixie's Crafty Workshop #138 as I used snippets of lace and ribbon in the making.

No idea of the sex of the baby hedgies. We're pretty sure the Daddy is a male and the Mama is a female though :)

Writing the Playground up before dashing out!

I forget about chalks but after seeing your card I need to get them out. This is so pretty with the soft coloring in chalk. I love the look of lace framing the card.
