New Style For Me-Shabby Chic Birthday Wishes

Evening peeps well I did it again popped out for a while right out of my comfort zone of cute characters and straight lines to try Shabby Chic Stylie would so love to know what you think.
The frame for my greeting is actually a Fancy Pants Rub on which I have had for ages and thought it looked great surrounding the stamped greeting,the gorgeous dress form stamp is from a great set called Paper Girl from the Girls Paperie,paper is from papermania which has been inked with Antique linen DI and distressed with TH paper distresser and also torn in places.
To embellish I have used pearls from Wild orchid and the flowers are from Hobbycraft.I have also used a Martha Stewart for the butterflies,added gems to their bodies and attached a small bow to the middle of the dress form to finish.
I hope you like it.
