Vintage Dimensional Butterfly Box Frame

























Hey everyone, I hope you are well :) I am here with a project I really have fallen in love with :) I won some printable cotton from crafty computer paper a little while ago and I wanted to think of different ways to use it.
I started with a box frame, some unbleached cotton, printable cotton, cardstock, glue and vintage images of butterflies.

I printed the butterflies onto a sheet of printable cotton, and then a second the same size onto cardstock. I cut around the fabric butterflies and then mounted them onto cardstock to make the dimensional look I wanted possible. I then folded these cotton butterflies wings and glued them onto the printed butterfly below.
As I waited for them to dry I used the paper insert that came with the frame to cut out a cardboard mount. I then covered this with the unbleached cotton.
Lastly I placed the butterflies where I was happy on the unbleached cotton mount and placed inside the frame.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
