Roses, Lace and Butterflies

I was the winner at Gecko Galz April challenge with this card!

Today I'm showing a collage card.  

The April challenge at Gecko Galz is to make something using Roses, Lace and Butterflies and the only rule is that you must use at least one product from Gecko Galz.

Here is my make. It's a card which can be used for any occasion.

I used distressed music manuscript paper for the background.
The roses were printed onto card and cut out. The edges were inked with Tim Holtz's Vintage Photo distress ink so that they would blend in with the manuscript paper. They were attached to the background on foam pads.
The gorgeous ivory lace was secured with glue dots at the back of the music paper.
The Geko Galz butterfly was fussy cut and adhered to card in order to make it stronger. It was clear heat embossed to give it some shine. Jewellery findings were shaped for the antennae and it was attached to the card.

The sentiment was inked and glued into place.

I'd like to enter this for the following challenges:
