"You are in my thoughts" with Butterflies

Hello everyone,  Peggy Lee here!
My amazing and talented friend, Lynne
asked me to create a little goodie to share with you all.

6x6 Easel Card
Card base is using black cardstock 6x12
Front base is 6x6 of Canvas Corp E-Flute in Brown
 Handmade papers in Ivory and Demask velvet.

Added some texture to the edges
with a Prima demask mask with stucco and gesso mixed together.

Side view shows the beautiful bridal netting I incased over the top
of the card to give a shabby feel.

 I choose to create with this awesome
I cut two butterfly pieces out of olde dictionary book pages.
Coated them with multi-medium matte
to give strenght to the piece.
I cut out the butterfly
 to lay over bottom piece to give depth.

Here is the lovely die...

I couldn't resist using my new Petaloo flowers that I bought last week,
 the color tones and textures were a  perfect fit with this card.

Thank you so much for allowing me to share my card with you!
I loved using the Die~Namites dies!!

Hugs, Peggy Lee
