Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge challenged us to use three different patterned papers on one card, and that was the start of this. I actually used four different patterns. I used a pack of papers from My Mind's Eye (The Sweetest Thing) that is very feminine, so I decided the embrace the girly thing.
The layout of the card is based on one I saw on some blog -- I thought I'd pinned it, but it wasn't on my board, so I had to go from memory. The doily was cut in half and sponged with a color called Papaya. I made banners out of a few snippets and pierced them around the edges, then covered all the top ends with an interesting bit of fiber. The butterfly is cut from a die from Simon Says Stamp (and my trusty Cuttlebug), and it's also edged in Papaya. I added three rosettes to make it really girly, and a sentiment from Endless Creations.
I'm entering these challenges:
Butterfly #18 -- three patterned papers

Crafting for All Seasons #90 -- Birthday
Clear It Out -- use three of something (roses)
Inky Impressions # 185 -- animals (butterfly)
