Twirling Pirouettes at Midnight!

Hehe silly title, but couldn't think of anything better! This card is for The Sweet Stop's Sketch Challenge #193 and Create with Connie and Mary's Challenge #234 to use these colours. I really struggled with this combo as nothing I wanted to use really went together, so pulled out my good old Delicate Doilies set to make the quick background, added the fussy cut Elizabeth flourished frame, but it still looked a bit plain, so I create a flying collection of butterflies up the side and now really like how it came out!

     

And here's my card.

And that's all for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by.
