Mojo Monday challenge #140

This is the sketch for the Mojo Monday challenge #140.  This was really a fun one to work on.  Here is my card:

I used a stamp I have not used enough, this lovely poppy from Crafty Individuals.   I stamped it several times, coloring the flower with worn lipstick distress ink, and layered it over the image stamped on cream cardstock.  Everything was distressed along the edges with brown ink, and I chose to use a digitally-reduced butterfly for the little image in the upper left corner of the sketch. 

Supplies: Crafty Individuals C95210L, Hero Arts stamps S5101 Raindrop Background, CL173 Simple Messages, CG119 Flourish Background, S4878 Old Letter Writing, F5158 Heart Winged Butterfly, cream, kraft, coral, unknown green dot cardstock
