PSC72 Sentimental Melinda

Good Morning and Happy Sunday. This week's Paper Sundaes Challenge is super easy - you just need to use a sentiment. And since we have a fabulous sponsor for this week - Whiff of Joy - I used their stamp called Melinda with Bouquet for my card.
I was browsing challenge blogs and when I saw the inspiration card on CASE Study challenge blog I was immediately inspired. I used the same technique, layout and similar color scheme, but used different stamps and added twine. The butterflies from the sentiment were transformed into stamped ones.
Melinda was colored with Copics - I used my new Xpress It paper and I have to say, blending was much easier on it!
For the background I used several SU sets - flowery swirls are from Elements of Style, Butterflies from Botanicals and the splotches from Branch Out. Inks are all SU too.
Sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps - yes, I do have a ticket die, just couldn't find it so I had to just cut it out freehand ;) - Note to myself: organize dies

I'm entering it into the following challenges:
Flutter By Wednesday - open theme
Charisma Cardz - something that flies
Going Grey with Scrap Creations - Blue, Green and Yellow
