Mojo Monday week 75 sketch

Hello and happy Saturday! I hope you're having a great weekend. Mine has been very busy, but I got lots of things done.
Today's card I made for the Mojo Monday sketch challenge week 75. I used one of my new digital images from the Digital Stamp Oasis . Just released it today (along with 5 others)!
I love it, it is so much fun to color, and I think my digital artist (and dear husband) did such a wonderful job with it. Just what I had in mind.
I printed the image out as a wallet size on Georgia Pacific 110 lb card stock (from Walmart). No heat setting is required. The image was colored with my alcohol markers (I have copics, prismas and blick studio-they are all pretty much the same). The front mushroom and butterfly front wings were cut out and mounted with dimensionals for a 3d look. I added stickles to the caterpillar, the butterfly and the dots on the mushrooms. The blueish looking card stock is actually SU's basic gray stamped with white craft ink using Paisley background stamp. The designer paper is from SU (celery prints), and I used the MS Lace punch to create the border. The sentiment is from SU's retired set Vases in Vogue, one of my faves. I just love the sentiments that are included with the set!
Have a wonderful day!
Ellie.
