The lace background piece is adhered to an A-2 Kraft card base. I added a length of gold striped washi tape to the side for some added gold accents.
The butterfly image was die cut using vellum and then heat embossed using gold powder. I contemplated layering them onto some die cut butterflies using the same lace background paper, but finally opted for the lighter, less fussy simplicity of just the vellum butterflies. The fabulous sentiment is from the newer Keep It Simple: Friendship stamp set from Papertrey Ink. I really love it and I can see me reaching for it often.
The lace piece was die cut and then layered onto another piece of Kraft card stock. As much as I love seeing the peek-a-boo of the lace, I really liked the look that I achieved with it layered as well.
A few burnished gold sequins finish the design off. I really like how this turned out. I hope that my friend likes it as well. I am putting together a "Scentsational" birthday gift for her that will include all kinds of smelly things that us crazy ladies like! LOL! Thanks for fluttering by!
