CD Sunday - 'Quotations'

Good morning on what I hope will be a beautiful day.  It was a glorious day  yesterday when I typed all this.

I am afraid that I chose this weeks theme of 'Quotations'.  I am hoping to see lots of interesting and varied ones.  Unusual ones perhaps that can be stored away for future use.

My card was made using MCS Watercolour World 1.  I fell in love with the backing paper which is funnily enough in the images section.  I then found the butterflies to tie up with the quotation which  I printed in white as I think it looked better than in black or another colour.  I printed it all out on photo paper and then used blue mirror card and matt pink matting on a white card.

I did print out some more butterflies to decoupage but they didn't look right so I will add them to the insert when I make that.  I always leave the insert until I know what I am going to do with the card.

I look forward to reading and cribbing lots of quotations and I will have some of my parchment flowers for No:1 in my Top 3.  Hope you don't mind.

Have fun and take care.
