Butterfly and Lace

The current Butterfly Challenge is 'L for Lace' and as I found this lace at the bottom of my snippet drawer so I'm also in the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Card blank: 7" x 7" kraft 
Die: Memory Box 'Pippi Butterfly'
Card: Pink matt 
Paper: Craftwork Cards 'Botanica' (magazine freebie)
Other: Wink of Stella
Snippets: Lace and green ribbon 

I threaded the thin green ribbon through the lace and, as the lace was only a snippet, I cut my paper slightly smaller than the ribbon to allow it to wrap around the sides.  The paper was layered onto pink card before I wrapped the lace around the bottom section and then attached to the card front.   I die-cut a butterfly from pink card and attached it to the lower corner of the card.   To finish, I applied a Wink of Stella on the butterfly and the centre of the pink flower.

That is such a pretty paper Kath. I love poppies. Like Di, I thought it was stamped until I read your list of materials. The lace border is perfect to go with it too. Kate x
