Sweet Sketch A Flitter

I have several friends who absolutely LOVE pink, so when I saw this photo inspiration on Flutter By Wednesday's Challenge #190, I knew I needed to make a pink, flowery card. I used a glittery pink striped scrap so the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday was just right, especially since I could add a flower and pink sparkles.

The butterflies were from a set called A Flutter. I stamped them in Hollyhock ink, colored them with a pink Copic marker, added details with a black 0.1 marker, then added Bitty Sparkles.

5.5" square card recipe:
Paper - Close To My Heart Baby Pink, Blush textured, White Daisy cardstock; DCWV "The Sweet Stack" dp; Basic Grey "Lemonade" (flowered strip)
Stamps - Close To My Heart "A Flitter," "What a Great Day"(retired)
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black; CTMH Hollyhock
Other - Cuttlebug embossing folder; Recollections flower; Copic Markers YG03, R20; CTMH My Legacy Writer 0.1, Red/Pink Sparkles, Bitty Sparkles
