Cute card Thursday - Penny Black

Hello and happy Thursday! I hope you are having a great day and got to create something. I had a very busy week over here and it has been a week since I posted my last card. I had to put "make a card" on my to do list. LOL I made the card for today's Cute Card Thursday, to use flowers in your design. The images is from Penny Black, I received it from an image swap. I colored it using copics. The card is kept pretty simple since the image is so large. I added stickles to the flowers and added the butterflies which were punched out using a Martha Stewart punch.
Colors used are pink pirouette, gp white 110lb, and wild wasabi, and more mustard for the butterflies.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog, and for those of you who love to use digital images, be sure to check out the new Digital Tuesday Challenge blog. Oh, and tomorrow, 4/17 is the last day to enter for the Digital Tuesday challenge blog Design Team. The info can be found in this post.
