Penny Black Challenge #51 --- A sketch

Hello and happy saturday! I hope you are enjoying your weekend. I managed to make a card today for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge. Today it is a sketch challenge. You can see it here.I received this image from a swap a while ago. I am sorry, but I don't remember the name of the stamp. It is colored with prisma color pencils and baby oil and cut out with CM oval cutting system then layered on a scallop nesties oval.l. The designer paper is a retired paper from SU (spring showers). The other papers are SU's retired purely pomegranate, kiwi kiss and gp white. I embellished with a flourish (sizzix), butterflies (martha stewart punch) and some prima flowers. I also did some sewing around the edge and added stickles to the butterfly in the image. The sentiment is from SU's set "warm words".

Thanks so much for stopping by today. If you have time please visit the Digital Tuesday Challenge and play along for a chance to win some cute images from Dustin Pike.
