Penny Black and saturday sketch challenge

Hello and happy Sunday. I hope you are having a wonderful day. Last night after everyone went to bed I decided to work on some challenges, and I ended up combining the Penny Black challenge #49 with this week's sketch saturday. There is a recipe for the penny black challenge, 3 flowers, 2 papers, 1 charm/brad.
I used one of my favorite Penny Black images "waterlily skiing". The image was heat embossed and colored with copics. I applied stickles to the waterlily and the butterfly. The red designer paper is from my new "sweet stack" by DCWV , the other designern paper is just from my scraps and I don't know who makes it. The sentiment is from Stampin Up's retired set "beautiful beach". I added a small charm to one of the flower centers and a rhinestone to the other one.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today.

A couple reminders for you, if you haven't checked out this week's digital Tuesday challenge be sure to do that, the theme is "non-traditional shaped or folding cards" The DT has some gorgeous samples for you and you have a chance of winning a set of your choice from my grafico.
Second, if you would like to win some more "candy" you still have time to play along the Creatively Cute Blogger Challenge#6. You can read more about it in this post.

This is absolutely adorable Ellie. I love it! I just realized that I don't own any penny black stamps. Can you imagine? But this one is just TOO cute for words! =)
Awesome coloring, and I love the stickles, it really sets things off with a perfect finishing touch.
Hugs
Lynda =)
