Grateful Bunch, Sassy Salutations, What I Love

For this one i used different images from 3 stamp sets... Grateful Bunch, Sally Salutations, 
and What I Love.
I sponged Mint Macaron in the bottom right corner of a white panel first, then stamped the foliage in a kind of triangle pattern using Early Espresso ink. 
I stamped the sentiment using Basic Black. i also used the squiggly line stamp from the Sunburst Sayings set, coloring the stamp with a marker to get just the right length, but this is a difficult way of doing it, as you have to clean the stamp between each use and lining them up can be difficult. I would suggest just using your marker and drawing some lines.
I then stamped and cut out the flower and butterflies. I assembled the card using a Pink Pirouette cardbase, then a Mint Macaron panel. Then i placed the flower and butterflies on the card using dimensionals, and finished it off with some rhinestones and adding some shimmer on the butterflies and flowers with my WONDERFUL new Wink of Stella Glimmer pen! (have i mentioned how much i love this pen?)

I think it has a slightly vintage feel to it, even more so in person. If i were to do it again, i would add squiggle lines in the top left corner and maybe not bring the sponging so far into the middle, but more up the side and across the bottom a bit.
