March Card Sketch Challenge

Hello...hello, it feels like spring is finally knocking at our door!  Today I'm sharing a card I made for Practical Scrappers - March Card Sketch Challenge.  Our sketch was designed by the uber talented Christine Meyer.
You have to think outside the box a little bit for this one.  I initially was going to do something very similar to the sketch because, I love butterflies.  After giving it some thought, I decided to go with something a little different.  Same concept, just different images.  So without further ado, here is my take on this months card sketch challenge.
To start with, the base of my card I used Tim Holtz Kraft Core #24 card stock, cut 10.5 x 7.25 and scored down the center.  I then took my Sanding Grip and sanded some of the black color off of the card stock to expose the kraft core.  I used Tim Holtz pumice stone and frayed burlap distress stains to color the Manila tags.  I stamped all of my images on Manila card stock using jet black archival.
The stamp sets that I used were:
Studio 490 - It's Face Art LCS026
Tim Holtz - Tiny Things CMS164
Tim Holtz - Attic Treasures CMS123
I did some fussy cutting and shaded all my paper pieces with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
I accented with Tim Holtz idea-ology pieces.  Can I tell you how much I love his remnant rubs!  They are so easy to work with, in years past there have been rub ons out there that haven't been the easiest to work with but, these are definitely MUCH improved!  I did some sewing, layered everything up and there you have it.  I hope you enjoyed my take on the March card sketch challenge.  Head on over to the Practical Scrappers blog there's lots of other great ideas that the other gals have come up with as well!  Thanks for stopping by!
