Butterfly fun

I wanted to play along with the AAA challenge blog again this week.  The challenge is a sketch and/or color combination. I decided to combine both in one card.
 First off, I took a background stamp from Hero Arts and only inked part of it with two colors of Distress Ink, using the stamp pad directly to the rubber.  By only inking part of the stamp, I was able to have just a border of the design when I stamped it.  
 I used a set of round, stitch looking stamps from Prima to help match the sketch and the butterfly and the sequins finish off the card.  The butterfly is from Clearly Besotted.  
Here is the AAA Cards challenge.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

Beautiful card. I love how you incorporated both the colors and the sketch into your card. The "stitched" element is really cool. Thanks so much for playing at AAA Cards.

I love the design, it is a little elegant and grunge at the same time-wow!
