Life is Sweet: Art C collage kit with Atlantic Heart Sketch

Good morning!  I recently purchased a couple of Art-C collage kits at Tuesday Morning.  I believe they were about $1 per kit.  Each kit contained a 4.5" x 4.5" sheet of paper, sheet of die cuts, doily, a piece of corrugated paper, a tag, and a wood die cut.  They looked really neat.  I used parts of both kits here.  I took a cue from the gold in the string on the tag and added some gold bling, everything else is from the kits.

Here's the sketch I used from Atlantic Hearts sketch challenge.  The chevron paper with the kit was just perfect for the chevron piece across the bottom of the sketch.

I manipulated the butterfly to give it some dimension.  I inked all the edges with Quick Quotes Java chalking ink.
