A Little Bit Crafty-Less is more! Midway Inspiration

Good morning everyone, hope you are well! I am here with some midway inspiration for our 'Less is More' challenge at A little bit Crafty!
I used a new die for the butterflies in the shape of a heart-its a Memory box die. I began by cutting a panel to fit the front of my card. I then put this through my die cutting machine to get the butterfly heart effect. The butterflies arent cut completely from the cardstock, just the edges so they give the look of flying. This is a challenge for how to include colour in these so my workaround was to paint the butterflies with assorted colours of cosmic shimmer. So in person this card is really pearlescent in look. I then added a panel of pearlescent cardstock in a complimenting colour behind my butterfly panel. This shows through the undersides of the butterflies too.
I then mounted all onto a card blank.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Home Decor Project-Beaded Curtain Tie Backs

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my favourite home decor make in a while. My father made me a four poster bed as he had some spare wood and I have always wanted one! 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.
