A little Miss Havisham...............................

I recently watched the new 'Great Expectations' with Helena Bonham Carter playing Miss Havisham.
As a lover of anything shabby, Miss Havisham, to me, is the ultimate source of shabby inspiration. This version of  GEs was no exception.
When I saw The Shabby Tearooms image for Challenge Week #175 - 'Romantic", Miss Havisham came to mind.
I thoroughly enjoyed making this card.

 
I used lace from my Stash of lace. The Broderie anglaise lace is Tea dyed.

Script paper is from MME.

The sentiment is from Hero Arts Clear set Truly Grateful (CL569)

 
The sentiment is backed with a Spellbinders - Labels 17 diecut.

The small white butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch.



The large butterfly is a from a cheap metal belt. I 'aged' it with ink and paint.
The bling is from Bella Bling.
Flowers are from 'I am Roses'.
The twine is crochet 0.5mm hemp from the Hempbeadery on Etsy.


Have a great weekend everyone..........................
