I was lucky enough to win one of Liz's amazing Vintage Rose Paper Pads from the Pink Petticoat Blog Hop.  It arrived yesterday and I couldn't wait to get started!

Here's what I came up with last night.

The colours and patterns of these papers are so delicate and feminine.  I used a tag that's been soaked in tea, I love how each tag comes out differently depending on it's position in the bowl....if you haven't tried tea dying's fun and easy to do.

The butterfly is made up from a patchwork of the papers as is the square behind it. To finish off the card I distressed some lace using Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Ink and added some wrinkled seam binding, together with a distressed doiley!

I'm entering this card into Papertake Weekly's challenge which is Anything Goes with the option of adding flowers.

I will share another project using the same papers very soon.
