Quixotic Paperie Challenge Blog Challenge No. 11

Quixotic Paperie Challenge Day! This week it was Martine’s turn to choose:

Flutter By!

Use butterflies on your projects in any way you want! So I’ve made a butterfly-shaped card with one of the lovely Quixotic Paperie butterfly charms for extra butterfly-ness.

You may have guessed the papers already? Basic Grey Origins from Quixotic Paperie. I’ve distressed the edges a bit with my seam ripper and gone a little mad with my sewing machine!

The little flower and leaf is cut out from some white Floral felt ribbon and then sprayed with Shimmerz Spritz Licorice.

Have a fluttery day

    Love it! The stitching is fab, and I do love Origins, so yum.

    What you've done with the felt ribbon is fab! I'm currently obsessing over felt…for some unknown reason.
