Pink and Pearls

The challenge over at Meljen's Designs is to use pink and pearls.  This is my card for the challenge.

I used the image Daisy Butterflies which can be found at Whimsy Stamps.  I colored the image using colored pencils blended with baby oil.  I sponged the edges of the cardstock and patterned paper with some Tea Stain ink from Stampin' Up.  It came in the distressing kit and I love it for warming up papers and images.  The pearl ribbon trim was some that I had left after making my sister's wedding bouquets.

Card measures 5.5" x 4.25"

What a sweet stamp. I love how you've done the colouring, I've not heard of pencils being used with baby oil!
