A butterfly hanging

This started out life as a boxed frame with 3d butterflies in it, but along the way it kind of became something else!
The butterfly specimen stamp is from Pink Paislee and I've used it with VersaMagic inks. The plain card has been inked to age it and I've added a few dots in grey here and there, also trying to give an impression of age.
Background papers are a page torn from a Making Memories notebook and a page from the newest Prima releases.
The flowers are and the beaded stamens are from old supplies and swaps. See, I don't just use new stuff all the time, although I am buying far too much at the moment!
