Old Fashioned Florals for Freshly Made Sketches.....

Hello everyone: I've been busy with the grandkids this Summer, but I still try to steal a bit of time for making cards to participate on several challenges. This time it's for Freshly Made Sketches with a really awesome sketch by Kim Singdahlsen. This is the card I made.
This pretty ovals are from a retired Flourishes stamp set called "Old Fashioned Florals", I stamped the images with Stazon Jet Black ink onto Canson water color paper and colored them with SU markers and the aqua painter, my favorite way to add color to my images.
I die cut them with Spellbinders Oval Regalia dies , embossed a piece of Strawberry Slush card stock with the Filigree Frame embossing folder (retired) and arranged them according to Kim's fantastic sketch, I added one of the small butterflies from SU Papillon Potpourri , I think it looks so sweet flying out of this pretty floral frames.
I hope you like this card, as always, I welcome and appreciate your comments and questions.
Have a great weekend, enjoy the heat, my friends. Up here in NW Indiana, we actually only have the rest of July, August and maybe September of warm temperatures, I just hope this year's Winter will be a bit kinder to us.
Many hugs.
Maria.

    1. Thank you Patti, I was so happy the images fit so perfectly on this die, like it was made for them. As far as color mediums, I think the only one I haven't tried much is alcohol markers.
