Nora Swinging with Buttons and Butterflies

I received this Swiss Pixie stamp in some blog candy and have been wanting to ink it up so here it is. I stamped it in brown and colored with Copics and added sparkle to the fairy wings and butterflies. I cut out the image and distressed the edge of the circle.  I let Nora's feet dangle beyond the bottom..looks like she is actually swinging. I added some flowers to the vine using mini buttons. On the base card of a speckled CS, I added the pattern paper strips....used this paper because it picked up the colors on the image.
I stamped and cut out more of the butterflies and attached with glue dots. I used brown twine to give dimension to the swing. Don't know if you can see in photo. Added another button layered with punched flowers. Finished with a sentiment.
