LOC CP Embroidered Flight

I have created this card using Layers of Color Embroidered Butterfly cling art stamp - I just love butterflies - as we all do and cannot go past the Layers of Color butterflies - they just come to life the minute they are stamped - what more could we want!?!?

I have used a music sheet from an old Hymnal - I love using these sheets on pages - they hold their own charm an add an instant vintage touch - perfect for me!

The Embroidered Butterfly has been coloured with SU Chalks and a Blender Pen and had 3D Kindy Glitz added for texture and that touch of shimmer!

The semi circle is part of a plastic doily - I am not sure where it came from (LOL) and the flowers are from the Layers of Color Flowering Gems art stamp set.

I have finished off with this divine lace, part of my stash and some pearls I have added to make a swirl.

This card is for the following challenges:
Delicious Doodles - For Mum - Mothers Everywhere
Fabulous Friday - Use Bling
Fairy Fun Fridays - Spring Themed
Fairy Knoll - Whatever
Fairy Tale - Pink and Green

Stamping Vacation - pick three: a circle; dry embossing; swirl; vanilla cardstock; star brad; thread or embroidery floss; corner punch; anything pink; a sentiment - I have a circle (half) swirl and used pink, also vanilla CS
