FANCY FILIGRIS !

Hello all
Another beautiful day here in the UK ! This is my latest creation and i hope you like it !!
I've used Martha Stewart borders that i've inked with distress inks. I've used 'Papermania' oriental paper for the frame, which is beautiful with the gold embossing on it. The butterfly was very painstakingly made by my fair hand in Parchment craft !! I normally would not take on such a feat, but decided to look upon it as a challenge and i think it paid off !! I dont know if the camera does it real justice, but in the flesh it is beautiful ( even though i say so myself ). I adorned the butterfly with Glamour Dust and pearls and finished the ensemble with a pretty pink bow.... ! Hope your day is filled with pretty butterflies, sunshine and love........ !
I am entering this card into the following challenges....

  1. Wow Chris!!!!!
    I have attempted Pergamano and know how fiddly and labour intensive it is, but the results when done well are stunning.
    Your butterfly is just that STUNNING.....
    No wonder you are pleased with it, well done indeed my friend.
    And what is this sentence at the beginning of your Blog;
    "Another beautiful day here in the UK"
