The image comes three ways, Adela & Dida, the flower, and then both images merged together in the way you see it here. This makes the image versatile and I love how the design team showcased her - check them out over at the Challenge & New Release blog.
I went all out on the embellishments which is the benefit to the larger 6"x6" card sizes. I've almost used up all the black swirls that I have - although I love the shape and look of them, they're hefty and so I use them sparingly. The stripped ribbon is a new addition to my stash and was fun to use for the first time.
Of course, I added some lasercut chipboards but this time I bent the wings on the butterflies so they were lifted off the page more; then I applied Petal Pink Liquid Pearls on the centers. I also used Liquid Pearls around the butterflies for an enchanted feel. The other chipboard embellishments were covered with a Pearl Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabber.

Did you know? Filigree is a delicate kind of jewelery metalwork made with twisted threads usually of gold and silver or stitching of the same curving motifs. It often suggests lace, and in recent centuries remains popular in Indian and other Asian metalwork, and French from 1660 to the late 19th century. It should not be confused with ajoure jewellery work; while both have many open areas, filigree involves threads being soldered together to form an object and ajoure involves holes being punched, drilled, or cut through an existing piece of metal.
