I am in need of some birthday cards, so I'm using Lesley's great sketch & colour combo from The Challenge to add to my stash. The 'rust' in the colour combo has become more of a dusty orange for me, but I think it still works. I added some Wink of Stella to the butterfly to give it a little glimmer:
What a great sketch! I may have to use it a few more times :o)
Patterned papers are Real Time2, Echo Park; Stamp sets are Better Together and Happy Thoughts, Verve; Dies are Sprightly Sprigs and Vintage Oval Frame Die by Verve and Pippi Butterfly, Memory Box; Inks are Black and Honey, CTMH.

Here's what I came up with:
