A Quilled Butterfly

Hello Everybody!

I was in the mood to quill-so I made a butterfly.  But I used the challenge at Inkspirational #27 to dictate the colors.

So here's my card:

Here are the colors for this week's challenge:

Periwinkle-the butterfly's body
Lavender-the background from Graphic 45
Deep Plum-the butterfly's wing
Split Pea-the butterfly's antennae

I also used a hexagon embossing folder from Darice and a Spellbinder's Die for the butterfly.  I enjoyed quilling the butterfly.  I haven't quilled in a while.  My husband laughs because I quilled flowers for our wedding invitations and I didn't quill anything for a long long time after that.  LOL. So this was a fun card to make. :)

Thank you for stopping by!  Until next time my friends...have a great day! :)

I never got to grips with quilling and as I'm impatient it seemed far too much of a faff for me LOL! So I take my hat off to you Katy for your lovely quilled butterfly - amazing job! Love the pretty paper and the embossed strip too and you made fab use of our challenge colours!

So lovely to have you playing along with us again at Inkspirational! Hope you've checked out the June Winner's post at Inkspirational! ; ) Ruth x
