Mixed Media Card

Hello!!!
I am only posting once a month these days as I am a little busy, but I thought you may like to see what I made this week.
I spent a day in the garage making up Backgrounds with the Gelli plate including stencils, and I liked this Bg so much it inspired me to make this card.

 I also made the Tyvek Bg behind the chipboard butterfly.
The text stamping  was added then I stitched in the left hand corner.


The element and main focal point has a Bg of painted Tyvek, I have combined layers of different media, added the glass seed beads, stitching and then cut the butterfly out of the Background paper, but this time I included foil sweet papers.
I would like to enter my card into these Challenges:
Frilly and Funkie- Layer It Up.
(Shabby Chic/Vintage)

I LOVE the Tyvek stuff and this incredible, Onion!!! I am happy to hear that you are recovered and doing well and crafting in your garage and making outstanding artwork like this. Will this be framed? It looks frame-able for sure.
I've missed you and it's not the same without you daily and I've been taking much longer breaks from the computer as a result. Enjoying the freedom though and I wish your blog would update on my feed so I wouldn't be so behind.
Anyway, it's been so refreshing to be here again and I've loved every second of seeing what you're up to.
BIG HUGE HUGS,
Quirks
