Very Victorian

My goodness, I've certainly piled it on on this card! Not one of my more CAS efforts......

The backing paper is from the old Artylicious "Filigree Fusions" CD and the image from a CD called "Victorian Ladies" that doesn't appear to have a brand name. I used a Marianne Creatables border die and a Spellbinders oval. Everything was edged with a very light touch of Tea Dye DI. I wanted to thread ribbon through the slots in the border, but had nothing in a suitable colour, so I dyed some white organza ribbon by dragging it over the surface of a Broken China DI pad.

The pearl embellishments are from The Handcrafted Card company and the tiny butterflies were a gift from a friend.

Before I move on to sharing this card, I'd like to share something else - the news that I've been chosen for the "Designer for a day" slot in the October 2015 issue of Quick Cards Made Easy: the card I made for it has already been shared on my blog.

Right, back to the blogs I'm playing along with today:
