Waterlily skiing is happiness

I created this card with a sketch from the sketch saturday blog. I am not sure if we were supposed to use only whiff of joy stamps. Well, I used Penny Black since I don't own any Whiff of Joy stamps (yet).
First I made the "water" using SU's bashful blue with their scallop edge punch. The second layer was adhered to the first layer using dimensionals. The mouse and butterfly were colored with my blick studio alcohol markers and then cut out with my sharp cutter bee scissors. I added the silver cord to the mouse' paw and attached the butterfly to the other end. The mouse was then adhered in between the two layers of scallop edges and GP white Cardstock and the butterfly was adhered to cardstock. This was matted on kiwi kiss cardstock. Designer paper is from SU. I applied stickles glitter randomly on the flowers and dots of the Designer paper. Before I attached the designer paper I attached the old olive ribbon the the left side of the card. The designer papers were then adhered to the GP white card front according to the sketch. I did some paper piercing along the edges. To finish this card off, I added the sentiment using the oval and circle punches by SU, and also used the photo corner punch on the left top corner with flowers added to the sentiment and photo corner. I also applied stickles glitter to the water lily.
Stamps: water lily skiing by Penny Black, SU sentiment
Paper: kiwi kiss, bashful blue, Designer Paper (all SU), white (GP 110lb)
Ink: versafine black
Accessories: blick studio markers, several punches, paper piercing tool and template (SU), felt, fabric and paper flowers, brads, ribbon
Thanks for looking.
