A Challenge Card using Newer Colors

I've just completed another Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge in combination with the Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge. There are many good reasons for me to do these challenges. Among them are using the many tools and supplies that I have, challenging me to pull together new things I haven't used yet along with things I haven't used in a long time. Coloring the flowers and butterfly had me taking the cellophane off of my Mint, Peach and Caroline ink pads, using CTMH's waterbrush, and digging up my scallop punch now discontinued. Adding the sentiment got me to open the February Stamp Set to see if there were any sentiments I could use for the card. I found this one to go well with the card because what butterfly doesn't appreciate a flower!  

Thanks to my friends at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and Color Dare Color Challenge to help me stretch my wings!
