Vintage Birthday

Hi all I made this card for my mum to give my sister on her birthday, my sister is in her early 70's so I decided to have another go at the vintage style.
I would like to enter this one into the following challenges:
I have used Bearlymine bp all have been mounted onto gold mirri card, I stamped my pattern butterfly with TH Walnut stain Distress ink the used a paint brush to colour, I have also used my Elusive Images Flower Rubber Stamps I used Versafine Onyx Black to stamp them cut them out and 3'd them onto each other.  I then added some lace, green ribbon, flowers from both Wild Orchid and Crafty Emma's stores, punched some butterflies, printed out a computer generated sentiment, also mounted onto gold mirri card, added some liquid pearls to the butterflies bodies and added star dust stickles to the stamped butterfly, I distressed the edges of the papers with my Tonic tool, the centre square I distressed with TH Old Paper Distress Ink.
I hope you like it see you soon, hugs to all.
