Verve Stamps: World Card Making Day sketch 2

Here is my entry for Verve Stamps' current World Card Making Day challenge.  This is sketch #2:

I love using pink and green!  For this card I used a Basic Grey clear stamp and designer paper from their Porcelain collection.  I stamped the rose using peeled paint distress ink and a peachy-pink Marvy marker, then distressed the panel lightly with worn lipstick distress ink.  That panel was framed in a mossy green, wrapped in organza ribbon, and added to the designer paper mounted on a peachy-pink cardstock.  I used my oval and scalloped oval nesties to cut out the sentiment, and lastly added some stamped and punched butterflies to finish.

Supplies: white, pink, olive cardstocks, Basic Grey Porcelain paper pad, and gracious stamp, #1633, Hero Arts CL434 Just Find Me (sentiment) and S4878 Old Letter Writing (on butterflies), worn lipstick and peeled paint distress inks, Versafine onyx black ink, Really Reasonable Ribbon Old Willow organza ribbon, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, Nesties oval and scalloped oval dies, pearls
