Sketch and Stash challenge 9

The latest challenge for Sketch and Stash is to create a card based on Lena's sketch. Goodness knows why because it's a super sketch, just my sort of layout, but I struggled from the start, probably because I wanted to use a new sheet of DCWV paper and couldn't decide what to put with it.

In the end, I ran a piece of card through the cuttlebug using birds and swirls folder, brayered over it with a multi coloured ink pad which left a nice highlight round the images. Next I brayered again using a glue pad and then added ultrafine iridescent glitter to the whole piece. Added ribbons, flowers and brads, stamped greeting with Hero CL278 across the bottom using a matching green emboss powder and a butterfly stamped on vellum with PB 3819D which I then glittered. I love the main image, but not entirely sure about the finished card, although the colours seem to run through OK.
