I used an embossing plate to create the flower texture, then cut it into 4 pieces. 
I distressed the edges and matted it with brown paper.

I used find detail gold embossing powder for the butterfly and scroll work corners.
 For the die cut flower...I used a brown marker to create lines inside the flower.

I added some gold butterflies, flying off the left side of the inside.

Close up detail pf the butterfly and scroll corner. I used a markers to color inside the scroll corner and the butterfly. Also I used the french brown ink to add brown edges to the butterfly that I cut out.

Using a sponge, I added distressing to the frame with three different ink colors.
