Getting Sketchy with MFT!

Hey there! I was searching all my favorite haunts today looking for a challenge (yeah, feelin' tough!) and happened upon MFT's weekly sketch challenge! I TOTALLY love this sketch and had so much fun making my card! First things first, the sketch!

I love it:) Did I already say that? Ha! I did change a couple things around, but all the elements are still there, and basically where they're supposed to be, lol! Here's my card using the amazing "Inspired by Butterflies" set (I can't find it in the store so it must be out of stock right now)--
I seriously had so much fun making this card, I was in my zone and loving just sitting there, happily gluing away:) I stamped the butterfly on a square of Vintage Cream cardstock and then stamped it again on a piece of patterned paper and then cut it out. I mounted the butterfly on top of the stamped cardstock and then stamped the sentiment! 
I cut two more butterflies out with the Butterfly Die-namics and mounted them on top of the big butterfly. I sprinkled the middle one with some chunky glitter and added some pearls to the smallest. You can also see, on this detailed shot, I used my Faux Crochet Border Die-namics and framed the cardstock square.

I got my NEW COPICS in the mail today, yeah baby! The only thing I hate about new colors is having to redo my color chart, lol! It takes forever!
It's pretty when it's all filled out though, huh?:)

Okay, that's it for me today, I'm off to make some TACO's and then we're going to watch Mega Mind!! We still don't know what day Billy is leaving, so we're living each day as though it were our last, lol:) See you guys later!
