Doodle sticker on an embossed background with ribbon flags

Another card using a sticker from my doodle coloring books!!  This one is from the Butterfly Garden book.  I coloured it with watercolour pencils and then applied water over them with a round brush.  It is a different look than applying colour with a brush.  It is certainly easier to fill in the small spaces with a pencil crayon.  I applied this sticker to white cardstock so the border disappears significantly which works out alright.  I manually embossed the background after applying the sticker.  That was not the plan but when I gently laid it on the surface to mark off the borders I was not able to remove it so I just went with it.  I sponged the outer edge with a bit of warm blue ink and then machine stitched on some ribbon flags with white thread on the right hand side.  I like the polka dot ribbons!!  I added a layered punchie greeting just below the butterfly.  Thinking it needed a bit of something, I added little rhinestones to some of the dots on the butterfly and also a little red heart rhinestone to the body.  Adds dimension along with the ribbon.    Therese
