Shabby Chic K & Co Birthday Card with Martha Stewart Butterfly Punches

I was pleased with how this turned out, it only started as a die cut greeting and i built it up from there, i design like this quite a lot.

The circle in the middle was quite fiddly but i like how it turned out, I used the new large scalloped circles, I think they are called "Big Scalloped Circles" and on each scallop popped a pearl, and in between each scallop popped the tinyest MS butterfly punch out, folded!

The K & Co Paper is double sided to the butterflies along the top are the ones that punched out with the tiny one and i just flipped them over! Magic!

The lacey trims were just from my box of lace bits but i think fitted in well, the paper used for the background is not lots of scraps but actually a printed sheet, loved the scrappy look to it though!

Hope you like it and don't think its too shabby chic!!
