Dance of Butterfly - Sweet Pea Stampers

This card is for the latest Sweet Pea Stampers challenge, which is the above sketch by Pascale.  I stamped
Ching-Chou Kuik's Dance of Butterfly on watercolour paper and coloured the image with Promarkers before adding the odd touch of glitter, glaze and gold liquid pearl.   My background is made up of blue and green Coredinations card embossed with various Cuttlebug folders. The embossed sentiment is matted onto a piece of card from the DCWV glitter stack.  The faux ribbons are scraps of pale blue embossed vellum and I finished it all off with various embellishments, including beads, gems (and a starfish as I wanted to create a watery theme).
