BC212 Let's Get Sketchy

Whew....After a LONG wait Blogger is finally up and running!

Today the Blogger Challenge group is showcasing this wonderful sketch:

Here's what I created:

I started out by picking out the patterned paper I wanted to use since the sketch had lots of layers I needed something that would be match well. As luck would have it I had some paper by My Minds Eye-So Sophie line that worked great.

Next I picked my stamps (or in this case a single stamp) from A.Muse Studio (Beautiful Botanicals 2)I stamped the Leafy background with Versamark Ink on Bermuda Bay-SU card stock. Then I stamped it once on some Sugar(AMS)cs with Fern Ink(AMS). I added butterflies punched from the patterned paper. Added some pearls (Dyes with Copic Markers) and ribbon. The darker green ribbon is from AnnaBelle Stamps and the smaller ribbon is SU.
Punch: EK Success

I left off a sentiment and will put one on the inside when I figure out what I want to use this card for.

So now it's your turn: Link you card below so we can see how you interpret the sketch.
