Beau Chateau Doily

I've had this card in the making for some months.  I just couldn't get it finished.  Today I was determined that it had to be done.  The seam binding is hand dyed and the doily stamp has been embossed with ink sponged over the top.  I cut the top layer of the butterfly out of the same embossed piece of card stock.  The dsp is Beau Chateau.  A pearl flourish and a sentiment finished it off.  I hope it looks ok, I'm still not too sure about it.

We've had thunder here most of the afternoon, but the storm isn't here..over the mountains a bit.  Definitely the weather will break soon because it's been so very hot.

I have been making some other cards and I'll put those up tomorrow.  Off to start on the kitchen so I can get some tea ready.
Thanks for visiting today.
