Shabby Chic Butterflies

The New Theme/ Colour
for my Butterfly Challenge is

Your buttons can be real or 
faux (i.e button EF, die cut buttons,
button design paper.)

Here is my inspiration for you.
I decided to go Shabby Chic
and had a sort through my stash.
This is the result.

I used pink card stock for the base and then 
layered up with bronze shimmer card stock.
I used Kraft card and a butterfly EF by Darice.
Covered in  Imagination Crafts Diamond Metallic paint
Edged with Liquid Pearls Copper Pearl.
Embellishments used are flowers,laser cut bird cage,
feather , laser cut banner and shabby chic butterfly cutouts.
Large  bronze edged button from my button box. 

Hope you will play along with the new challenge.
