Free-form embroidery + brooch

So I was finally able to find a home for this beautiful butterfly brooch I received as a gift a while back. It was from an antique dealer, as the story goes, and I have no idea the value, but the intricacy is awesome. I used green linen for the backdrop and then made a free-form flower from purple embroidery floss and as is the trend, I will leave it all in an embroidery hoop as a wall hanging. So pretty!
