grid and lace work butterfly

A very kind lady (Sylvia) on DC gave me two grids; one bold and one fine.
With the help of Christine Coleman's dvd I have been playing and practising.
This is my first piece of work.
I sent it to Sylvia as a thank you.
 


 
 
 
 
I used the bold grid to make the butterfly, embossed, cut the crosses and then pricked and cut around it and through the red backing card.
Sewn onto the red card.
 
Thank you for looking and for any comments you may leave xx
