Silvery grunge with a foil butterfly

Hello everyone, hope the Sunday is going all well for everyone. We are getting lashed by heavy rain, and storms, and the heat isn't budging despite all that. I just finished running all errands for my grocery shopping for the coming week. Made some chicken biryani and stuffed tomato curry for lunch, which will be out dinner as well, everyone was quite happy with the delicious lunch.
Now, I have some time to share a card which I made yesterday night.

This card has a lot of things which I usually don't do a lot.
I chose all white base and front. I started with some peacock feathers distress ink, and sponged it randomly, and then I used a mist spray in ocean blue color, and sprayed twice, that was left with some grungy spray. But I don't know why I decided to add some silver embossing powder to it, and heat embossed it.
Then used the ARTplorations leaf print stencil and inked up with peacock feathers ink. I die cut a foil butterfly, which I added with some black twine, and the sentiment is from Uniko Studio. Quite a lot going on this card, but despite all this I love this card, might have to say that it is one of my favorite ones now!!

I have leaf stencil and stamps here.

I have used a foil to die cut the butterfly.
