Butterfly Specimen Display

I love museums and old school museum displays. I also love butterflies.

I've created my own butterfly specimen display using a ATC Display Tray, adding a few extra details, and boatload of fussy cut butterflies.

I've kept the embellishments conservative on this project but I haven't left it completely plain. The corners each have a piece from the Petal Corners set added, and I've added a sort of name plate using the Stackable Labels Shape Set.

I've also numbered the specimens with the Tiny Number Plates - Silver

I'm really pleased with the result. Best of all, it didn't take ages to create this piece!
