CAS{E} this Sketch! #167.....

Hello everybody: I have a card to share with you for the CAS{E} this Sketch! challenge #167 , I used a stamp and die set that it's so darn old I'd forgotten where it came from. I've been making cards for over 8 years now and back then when I started I just bought my stuff and never bother to save the package, I didn't write the name of the stamps, dies, papers.....I never dreamed of having a blog in those long ago days but now, I'm in dyer need to know and most times, my search for the origins of my older stamps is unsuccessful, this is the case of this particular set with the butterfly. The other set is SU Gorgeous Grunge. Here is my card and, if any of you recognize this stamps and dies, please let me know, thank you.
I stamped the SU Gorgeous Grunge images with Versamark ink and heat embossed them in gold, the sentiment word was die cut with gold foil paper using THIS die I bought for $1.99, the word is a nice size, the butterfly is stamped with Stazon Jet Black ink (because the stamp is red rubber) and colored with SU markers and the aqua painter. I added some gold gel pen to the little circles on her wings.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.


The sentiment is from a retired Flourishes set called "Orchids" and the flower and small butterfly are from the same unknown set. 
Here is the banner that inspired my card.


And her is a picture of this stamp and die set, if you recognize it, I would really appreciate if you can tell me the name and company it's from.
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

The butterflies and flower are from a Sizzix/Hero Arts collaboration set called Butterflies 3, Item #657773.
Lovely card, BTW. :-)

Wonderful take on the sketch! That stamp/die set is by Hero Arts. It's been discontinued for a long time (I don't know the name) but you are lucky to own it!

I did some detective work. It's a Sizzix/Hero Arts collaboration set. Here is the original packaging:
