Lace butterfly

Welcome to a brand new challenge at Love To Scrap !!   The theme chosen this time around should be an easy one, as it's "Ribbon Or Lace Oh My" and is exactly that -- use either ribbon or lace on your project (or you can use both).   We sure would love to see your entries, and you also get the chance at three sponsor prizes, which are furnished by "Stamps on Fire", "SLS Lines" and "All Dressed Up Stamps" -- or even have your card chosen as one of the Top Five - how awesome is that.  Since my image is called "lace butterfly" from Stamps On Fire,  I stuck to the lace portion.   I used three varying sizes of lacy doilies here, but if you look close, you'll see that I've used strips of lace at two of the corners.   The pink gems I added are called "bubbles" and come from Queen and Co.   I'm not sure, unless you get real close up, that you can see I've separated the upper butterfly wings to put foam tape under to give them more of a 3-D look.  Stickles was added for a bit of glitz on the wings, after being colored with regular and prisma pencils.
