Something Old, Something New...for Allsorts Challenge

It's time already for a new theme at Allsorts challenge! Kath is hosting this week and picked the theme of.......Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed or Something New. 
She is not looking for wedding cards, although they would of course be just as welcome, you can pick from the challenge theme what you'd like to use or use all four. We have 2 prizes this time and to cover the Easter holiday the challenge runs for two weeks. Hope you decide to join us!

I decided to used everything from the challenge theme: 
  1. Old Heart Embossing Folder
  2. New Digi Stamp
  3. A Borrowed Sketch
  4. Blue Ink

This is another image I recently purchased from  PowerPoppy and printed the "no line coloring" options. I'm not really familiar with coloring the "no line" way, and I didn't try to color that way, I simply wanted a lighter outline than black ink.

The image has been colored with my Faber Castell Polychromos pencils on 110 lb cardstock I recently picked up from Walmart which works perfectly in my printer. I used the Avery Elle Wonky Stitches Die Set  to cut out the image panel. 

The hearts embossing folder is an old one by Cuttlebug, but there are several choices available. The green pattern paper strip is from my stash, I believe it's another oldie from Stampin Up. Added some silk ribbon behind the image panel and cut out the sentiment using a small circle die. The sentiment is from a Penny Black set. A Martha Stewart punch was used to cut out the butterfly. 

This sketch I found from Julee of Mojo Monday, it's an old sketch I came across on pinterest so I won't be linking it up there.

A close up below....this image took a long time to color, I spent several evenings on it.
