Happy Birthday

I had some paper left laying on my desk from the anniversary card I made a few days ago so decided to make a Birthday card they always come in handy . The frame .flowers,leaves and lace border as well as the lacy corner were all sitting in my stash . The only new thing I had to cut was the butterflies. So this was a pretty easy card to assemble.

Paper by BoBunny  Madeline collection, Bazille c/s
Dies: TH Ornate frame, TH Vintage Lace , TH Tattered Florals, SB Foliage and Bella Rose , CLD Exotic Butterflies Sm#2, CLD Lacy Corner B165, Prima Metal Leaves Die

I painted the butterfly with Spun Sugar DP heat embossed it with clear EP and layered it on another butterfly which was sponged with Shabby Shutters DI . I like how you see tiny cracks in the paint once it's heated .I then sponged over it with Victorian Velvet DI.                                                

I'm entering this in the following challenges:
