Phindy's Place Challenge #58 - Sketchtime!

Good Morning and welcome to a new Phindy's Place Challenge.  This week we have a lovely sketch by Anne-Marije for you to interpret.  I've gone with a vintage/shabby chic version that started out with a new DP pad called Butterfly Collection, by Pink Paislee.  My month's stash diet has finished and I just *happened* to be in my local craft shop that day when I saw the papers lol!  The Little Swinger image was perfect for my papers, I paper pieced her dress and used soft colours in my Copics.  I stamped some random text in grey around the image and then burshed Distress Inks on.  The lace, printed tape and flowers all happened to find their way into my basket when I was shopping too...  I've added lots of stitching, distressing of edges and cut outs of some of the images from the DP, which have Glossy Accents to stiffen them.

My card is also for:
Paper Sundaes - vintage/shabby chic
Copic Creations - Distressing with Copics (though I have also used DI on the background, hope that's ok)
Spoonful of Sugar - flower power
Stamptacular Sunday - bugs or boys (plenty of bugs!)
Bunny Zoe - lace
Bearly Mine - diecuts and lace
Anita Be Stampin - lots of layers
Paper Creations - ribbon or lace
Ai Factory - distressing
Crafty Purple Frog - things of beauty
Wags'n'Whiskers - stitching
