Frantage Butterfly

Happy Easter everyone, I hope you don't eat too much chocolate and make yourself sick!
Mum and I had a lovely crafternoon playing with our Craftwork Cards Shabby Vintage goody bags we picked up in the their sale after Christmas.
We got quite messy with our cards as we stamped the patterned paper with flourish stamps and dusted them with blue mica powder for a touch of shimmer, unfortunately it doesn't show very well in the photo.
The butterfly topper was in the goody bag, I just added some Stampendous embossing enamel to it and heat embossed for a shabby look.  I used some lovely large brown pearls for the body and mounted the butterfly onto a die cut circle made with a Spellbinders Splendid Circles die.
The sentiment is an old Anita's one that's been in my stash for ages, I think it would be perfect for many occasions.
To finish off, I stuck on two Creative Expressions corner embellishments, a blue bow, some lace and some blue pearls.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
