Birthday card with hand made tissue paper flower

This is the very simple Birthday card ,i made 
yesterday .


                                it took just 15 minutes to finish the card ,
                                i did not use any backing paper ,as  it would ruin 
                               the polka dot card base. 
                               the stickers are from my favorite pepper and friends 
                               collection.and this is my second quilled butterfly .
                               the first one i made was done by shaping eccentric 
                              coils .within 15 mts it was really challenging.
                              and the paper flower was made by seeing Lauras 
                              video instructions .but i did not use the same 

                               i   used paper tissue (from chinese restaurant )


                                 and it was little tricky to crumble this
                                 kind of paper but i enjoyed trying it.
                                 i used revive starch instead of gimmer mist.
                                 and in the butterfly the body and feelers 
                                 are made with old brown envelope cut into 
                                 thin strips.RECYCLED!!!!!.

                                Thanks a lot for encouraging me with your
                                 precious comments.

                                Have a lovely sunny Week end.
                                 (its always rainy weekends here )
