Perfectly Rustics challenge #41 - Wings

When you think of wings there are many an idea that pops into your head..... Butterflies, bees, birds, planes, angels... the list goes on and on! What a great idea for a challenge! Perfectly Rustics this fortnight are focusing on wings and we are keen to see your creations!

I went with one of the obvious ones - Butterflies. This being another wedding card I've needed this summer holiday. I wanted it to be regal and elegant so adding gold was top of my list. I do sooo love the little butterfly embosslits folder from SU, it's soooooo versatile!!! Since setting up my sewing machine in a more "let's sew NOW" place I've been doing alot more.... YAY!
Ruffle ribbon and burlap look really cool I've decided (must remember that for future cards...) and layers on the butterflies with some vellum give the butterflies dimension!
I'm sooo happy with how this card turned out, can't wait to actually give it to the newly weds.
