Great Sketch from AnnaBelle

AnnaBelle Stamps Blog has a great sketch challenge this week and it ends soon. I thought this was open until Thursday but just saw it closes in 55 minutes from now.  Glad I checked again. Check their blog to find out about more changes in challenges.
I like the colors that I chose for this....began with the CS which is a soft Aqua...and found the ribbon and then a scrap of  Yellow CS that matched for the focus image.  I used  green ink to stamp on White CS. I used the Aqua for the card base, added a white mat and then a embossed mat of the Aqua. Added the ribbon to the image and attached. Finished with 6 pearls.
Supplies:
Stamps: AnnaBelle "All Things Grow"
Ink: Memento Cottage Ivy and Tuxedo Black
Papers: All from Stash and Scraps
Cuttlebug EF Diamond Plate
Ribbon: From Stash
Pearls: AnnaBelle Stamps

Note about the butterfly: I stamped the image in black on yellow CS Scrap. I cut the butterfly out and then stamped the image again on the back side of the butterfly. Easy to do with with the clear stamp.  I folded it in half and attached with dimensional to get a 3D look of a butterfly in flight. I drew the antennae with a marker because they were too small to cut out.
Challenges:
