Sketch challenge

I'm on a roll with the sketch challenges from Amy at Prairie Paper & Ink. I love her sketches, especially with the circles. Here is the sketch for this week:
And here is my creation for the sketch:

I've started with a base card of Rose Red, then layered some Pretty in Pink cardstock. For the other layers as per the sketch, I've used paper from Rasberry Tart - one of my favs. I've also added a strip of Kiwi Kiss which has been prettied up with the Eyelet border punch. Another fav of mine!!
For the main image, I've used the butterfly from Garden Whimsy. It's firstly inked up in the Pink and then the edges have been rolled into the Rose Red. I've used my CM circle cutters to create the circles.
I've added some stitched ribbon in pink and tied it in a bow. I'm just loving bows at the moment.
The sentiment 'friend' is from a new set in the Spring Mini. I've used the Rose Red marker pen to colour the word 'friend', then used an oval punch.
So there you have it, simple but sweet. Thanks for another great sketch Amy.
