Cupcake Boutique Collection Card and Present in One!

Good morning everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with a card and gift in one! I used the Cupcake Boutique Collection from Dovecrafts for this card-I had wooden shapes with this so started my creation by creating a brooch. I covered the butterfly with really pretty papers and gems. I then varnished with glitter Modge Podge. Next I added a brooch to the reverse.
I then created my card, using a pearlescent card blank, two papers from the collection, paper flower border by Docrafts which I embellished with pearls, a doily and a dome greeting. I then placed my brooch on built up 3D foam pads. So when the card is finished with you can remove the brooch to wear it.

So my job was to sort out the curtains and the decor to go with it. The bed was painted white and I chose Turquoise organza for my curtains. I thought for a while what sort of look I wanted and had the idea to make beaded tie backs, I wanted an opulent look so I looked for a good mix of Turquoise and other assorted vintage metallic beads, gem beads and pearls which matched well.  I found a fabulous mix of odd beads on ebay, then bought some plastic rings for my hooks, and the rest I had in my stash.  I also used Tiger tail, crimp beads, crimp covers and my jewellery tools.  I wanted to keep them as random mixes so I made each differently.
