A Note Card's Embellishment

Recently I sent some tatting to an online friend, and I wanted to include a note card.  You know me, it couldn't be just any note card,  I had to embellish one.  Here's how it turned out.  (this is separate from the tatting I sent her, but more on that later...........)



The butterfly was made from Mary's Butterfly's pattern, using Yarnplayer's size 50 nicobar pigeon HDT.  The flower was made from Lizabeth thread size 20 Latte Foam.

In reference to my 2012 UIU Project (use it up project) both threads were a part of my stash, so this will be counted as project # 8.  (#7 was the Hearts I sent to the Fringe Element Tatters, but I forgot to list them as #7.)

Have a good day!!

What a pretty card! I hardly ever think to embellish cards or anything else with my tatting. Maybe I should start!

Great thread colours on that butterfly. Very pretty tatting.

I love Mary's butterfly paattern, and you tatted it so nicely in Marilee's thread. Is the flower your own design? I like the way the petals overlap also, like the butterfly! The card is so cute!

I love your card! You decorate your cards with way better and bigger tatting than I do.......
