Shabby chic Best Wishes

Side View
Hello friends !  Sharing a shabby chic card today.

Front View

I keep seeing so many beautiful and intricate die-cut butterflies on various cards ,and was inspired to try n cut one .
Handcut Butterfly

how is it? 2.5" wide ,kept it large to be on safer side.

Crushed velvet flock
 I wanted some texture on it ,soft n delicate just like real one, Crushed velvet flock were just perfect for it.I received it as part of Giveaway long back never used it ,Was waiting for good idea. I used 3 colors from the pack white,light and dark pink loved the velvety texture.glued small flat base pearls on the antenna.
Card Supplies
 Now assembling the card !
For the background I applied texture paste through stencil and then sprayed  LSG starburst spray in the center.Layered gauze then handcut ,heat embossed oval frame.Adhered the butterfly in center of the frame.
For the base drew strips with water color pencil on scrap paper and went over it with damp brush.Tore the scrap in center and curled the edges.
