#66 Butterflies + Q is for Quotes and/or Quick Silver

Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge. Winners results for #65 are in the post below. Please make sure you check back as it could be you.  Unclaimed prizes go back into the pot and there have been a few! Thankyou all so much for continuing to play along.
We are now three quarters of the way through the current set of letters and themes. A new mix has been entered into the challenge too!!

Each challenge will be a different letter of the Alphabet. It will always be Butterflies with the addition of an item/theme beginning with a chosen letter. Along with the letter will be a corresponding colour.
You may choose to use just the letter/theme + butterfly or use the colour +butterfly.
If you make your project using both the letter and the colour +butterfly you will be eligible for going into a second draw to win an additional prize. so that's 2 chances to win on each challenge.
My Guest Designers will choose which letter goes next and I will supply the theme and colour.

I'm delighted to introduce you to my next Guest Designer.
Please welcome 
Kath B.
(winner of #60)

Kath says
I've always enjoyed crafting and started knitting and sewing clothes for my dolls when I was young.  Since then I've also done crewel and cross stitch embroidery, woodwork, flower arranging, cake decorating and sugarcraft, and tried a few other things along the way!

A few years ago my husband gave me a gift voucher for my birthday so I could attend a local cardmaking class – he always jokes that it’s been the most expensive birthday present he has ever given me!  I started my blog Handmade by Kath to get feedback on projects for my Certificate in Papercrafts and now use it for entering blog challenges.  My favourite style is CAS, although I enjoy trying different styles and techniques to get out of my comfort zone.

Kath has chosen

# 66 Butterflies + Q is for Quotes
with the additional option of Q is for the colour Quick Silver

I'm upping the ante slightly here and asking for specifically quotes on Butterflies.
Here are just a few I found  though on the web to get you thinking.

If nothing ever changed there'd be no Butterflies.
Your wings already exist, all you need to do is fly.
Never settle for anything less than Butterflies.
Always be brave enough to fly.
Butterflies are self propelled flowers.
Blossom like a Butterfly.
The Butterfly counts not months but moments and has time enough.
Happiness is like a Butterfly.

Your card/project can have lots of colour just at long as you have used silver card either for the edging or silver for the wording. (I just need to see silver some where on your project).

Here is Kath's card for you.

I love the silver edged panels and the quote is so true.. 

Please pop over to Kath's Blog to see

Lovely cards from both you and Kath. I got the quicksilver but not sure if I nailed the quote (but at least I tried) xx

It has been so much fun making a card with this theme! I don't use quotes very often, so it really was a challenge to me!
