Aperture Card

This aperture card was sent in a goody bag swap from a group i am in on facebook called Creative Moments Craft Group, this is the link

At first glance it looked lifeless and dull so i chopped it in half and mounted the first side onto a card blank, chose brown with white dots paper for the background, cut the paper into an oval, then made a second oval but this time out of scrap paper i had in my stash, this one i inked around the edges with blending tool stamped a sentiment and used embossing powder and heated using heat tool. Added flexi peel offs around the outside aperture and also the middle aperture.

It already had swirls on the card but they didn't stand out very much so from the same goody bag i inked some swirls that came in it and added embossing powder then heat set it. The stars were already printed on the card so i added pinflair glaze to give them a glossy finish.

Added and placed two die cut butterflies which had been dipped in copper tones glitter and in the bottom corner added the rose also from goody bag swap, before attaching i sprayed the rose with spray and sparkle from crafters companion, added the leaves and attached with silicone glue. I inked the top right corner to blend in with the rest of the card and added gemstones to finish off.

Would love to know what you think all comments greatly appreciated.
