2 Sketch 4 You showdown sketch challenge

2 Sketch 4 You is having a Ulitmate Card Showdown to celebrate their anniversary.  It sounds like it is going to be loads of fun.  Stop by their blog and play along.  Below you will find the sketch that Laura gave us for this day 1 of the showdown.  I used a hostess set from Stampin Up!'s current catalog--God's Beauty.  I used Always Artichoke and Rose Red along with Whisper White.  I did alot of cutting--the butterfly and flowers are cut out and glued onto my card.  The sentiment panel was cut out using my nessties and cuttlebug--I modified the image--it is a Lable One nesstie but I cut off the top and bottom of it to change the look just a bit to fit with what I was trying to do with my card.  I also did alot of sponging.  Each flower was stamped in Rose Red and then sponged with Pirouette Pink.  The butterfly was stamped in Rose Red and sponged with Always Artichoke.  My edges were also sponged with Always Artichoke.  I added dew drops to each of my flowers and metal wire antennes to my butterfly.  Thanks for looking--let me know what you think!!
