Vintage Love Is Gone

Oh, to choose just one Sweet Pea image as a favorite - couldn't do it.  Had it narrowed down to five, closed my eyes and grabbed one, and it's "Love is Gone".  I colored the image with my usual Prismacolors.  Painted the wings with Frosty Lace Stickles.  The DP is Basic Grey Curio, and the sketch is a great one at Lili of the Valley.  I used vellum "petals" in the flowers and for one layer of the butterfly.  I also embossed the strip of vellum with Spellbinders Impressabilities.
Challenges:
Lili of the Valley - Sketch.
Sweet Pea Stampers - Favorite stamp.
PaperPlay - Shabby chic/vintage.
Paper Romance - Vellum.
Basic Grey - Wings.

Stamps:  Sweet Pea "Love is Gone", Crafty Secrets "Pink Ribbon".
Paper:  Basic Grey Curio.
Ink:  Memento, Colorbox Queues.
Accessories:  Handmade flowers, Spellbinders dies and Impressabilities, MS branch and butterfly punches, Stickles, Twinkling H2Os, foam tape.
