Wrought Iron Framed Butterflies

Here's another card I created for the Featured Stamper Challenge at Splitcoaststampers
this past week.  We were CASEing the work of Colleen Dietrich,
aka Smoatsmom and HERE is the lovely card which inspired me. 
It just WOWED me when I first layed eyes on it!
I was trying for a wrought iron look with the frame so I created a thin rectangle using two Nesties, then attached the My Favorite Things Framing Flourishes Die-namics die-cuts at the top and bottom.
The sentiment is stamped on a vellum banner created with MFT's Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics.  I was able to make it double ended by replacing the banner in die upside down in and then running it back through the Cuttlebug so the fish tail is on both ends.
I can't get enough of these Hero Arts Antique Flowers and Butterflies!
  I coloured them with copics and then highlighted with a white gle pen.
I'm about to take my computer in for a diagnostics test, it's been doing funny things lately, and I don't want it to crash and lose important files.
So, depending on the verdict, I may not be able to post for a few days!
Have a great week!
