Inspirational Journal - May Challenge

I have not used my old stamps from HA for awhile now and today's cards are from HA Antique Engraving and Manuscript Background.  

The background is embossed with TH distress inks and embossing paste is randomly applied on the chicken wire stencil.  The sentiments are from Kaizercraft.

I am entering this into the following challenges : Inspirational JournalInspirational Challenge and Simon Wednesday Challenge.
Added a purple metalic thread on of the butterflies.  Stickles are also added on the middle of the butterflies.

I love how it turned out that I decided to make another one.

Standing side by side and I thought the yellow with green gives a fresher look.

 Have a great weekend!
