PPA #312 and PP#307.....

Hello again everyone: Sometimes I get confused with the dates of challenges and I think I still have tons of time to enter them. This is the case with this card that I want to submit to the fabulous Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge by Linda Callahan, I thought I had more time but I only have 1 day and a few hours so, here is my card that I finished yesterday (By the way.....I kind of turned the design on the vertical, hope it's ok), I also will enter the The Paper Players with a theme challenge "You Light Up My Life" from Joanne.


This image is from a beautiful retired Flourishes set called S'more Fun and I think it fits the Paper Players theme really nicely. I stamped the image onto Canson water color paper and colored it with SU markers, I sponged a bit of Squeezed Lemonade distress ink on the lantern's glass for a warm glow. The sentiment is from the same set, I framed it with one of the dies on the Oval Regalia set. 
To follow the sketch, I inked up one of the stamps on the retired SU set called "Gorgeous Grunge" with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. 
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.


The sentiment is from a Flourishes set called Magnolias, the flowers in the corner are from another Flourishes set called From the Desk Of....., that little butterfly was my attempt of covering a black ink smudge, ughhh!! don't you hate when you have your panel all done and looking pretty and you mess it up with your inky fingers??!!! I tried to erase it with no luck so I looked for a stamp that would be small enough not to take the entire space and that also would go with my inside panel and I found it in the beautiful retired SU set called Flowering Fields
Here are the banners that inspired my card.

    1. Thank you my friend, thought of coloring it green but red looks warmer.
      Lucky save with that butterfly, although they say this could be just a happy accident.
