Patchwork Doily.

It's a new challenge over at 
my Butterfly challenge with the theme of

The starting point for this card was
the backing  which is actually the inside cover 
from a Mother's Day Card which I had 
received and was about to stash away
as I had thought it too pretty to discard.
Light bulb moment!
Would be  perfect for this challenge.

The patchwork design just lent itself to having some 
stitching added both down the side of the card and 
on the doily.
Butterflies were cut  from scraps of red card and gems
from my stash along with the pink crochet thread.
Doily is a shop bought one from my stash.
Sentiment is by Wow stamps.
The faux patchwork and the real stitching 
I think work well together.

I may be able to find a doily, but I sure wouldn't try to sew on one. I'm impressed! This is lovely and I love the stitching!
