Say it With Flowers at The Pixie Cottage

This week at The Pixie Cottage we have another great sketch you can follow, or you can follow the theme and use flowers on your creation.  Or, you can do BOTH, which is what I did.  I used Spring Time Hannah With Butterflies available at Michelle's Scrapbooking and More.  I colored the image with Copics, then sponged on the clouds with Distress Inks.  The big rose was made with Spellbinders Rose Creations die, and the little ones with a small retro flower punch.  The gold sprigs were cut from vellum with a Marianne D die.
