Butterfly in Parchment

There are always issues with attaching parchment layers to each other and to cards because there isn't really any kind of glue I've tried which doesn't show and you can't always disguise it with anything.  I've been using brads recently for all my parchment cards but decided to try something different with this one.  I've made it with two layers and the white layer is attached with four tiny brads but the whole thing is assembled as a card by cutting a backing card and a frame both of the same size and then gluing them all together - fortunately the scalloped design I'd done fitted nicely into the aperture of one of my large square dies.  I'm not sure why I didn't think of this before and I might try some other variations with maybe ovals or circles.
