Butterflies and Lace

Another challenge card for you this morning. This is for the CES Challenge #13 - Lovely Lace.
The butterflies were stamped on cream card and embossed in silver using stamps of my own design that I had made for me. They were cut out and coloured with Twinkling H2Os.
The delightful light blue lace paper is one of Joanna Sheen's designs. 2 rectangles were cut from this paper - the smaller one was layered onto cream card, then onto the larger lace panel and finally onto a patterned grey card. On the back of the grey card, double sided tape was run all around the edge, the backing pealed off and the lace ruffle was bonded to it. This had an elasticated edge to it which helped it to go around the corners. More double sided tape was run over this and the whole assembly was bonded to a cream pearlescent A5 size base card.
This is a very different card to the type I usually make so I hope you like it.
