Black and Gold Card & a Quilled Butterfly

Quilled butterfly Card

Hi Friends

This is the first time I attempted on-edge quilling with this butterfly. I had used a thick transparent sheet as base(vellum like from the cover of a desk calender) as base and had thought to use glass colours to fill the spaces but at the last minute I tried silver colour with gold beads. I want to make another one with glass colors too. Painting the base was tricky as the gaps inside were very close.

I have used a very nice golden paper from a wedding card on black cardstock, punched some small butterflies and added some quilling elements. I need some tips on how to take good pics, the card looks much better than the pics. Again a card with basic supplies and some recycling................hope you like it.

I took inspiration from shruti's this card using butterflies
