Lili of the Valley Thursday Sketch Challenge 102

Hello everyone! We have a lovely sketch by Donalda for this week's challenge over at LOTV. I think working from sketches are my absolute favorite challenges. They really help me break out of my usual layout 'rut'. 

I used the new Emma in the Garden stamp, colored in pencils. I went with a very Victorian theme to go with the beautiful Pink Paislee 'Butterfly Garden' collection of papers. Lacy doily and some distressed texture for the background layer. 

See that gorgeous sparkly butterfly in the upper left corner? That's one of those Stampendous Class A'peels stickers that I saw used on this blog and absolutely fell in love with the technique! So beautiful, and that microfine glitter, wow, you can color over it with markers and make it any color you want. 

Now make sure you check out all the inspiration from the other DT members, then create your own card for a chance to win some LOTV bucks. 

Thanks for dropping by!
