Penny Black-Lots of Hugs Card

Good afternoon everyone, I hope you are well :-) My card is another one from my challenge to myself to use the stash I already own to create from-these Penny Black stamps I got for my birthday a few years ago but I have to admit I have never really used them because I find little creatures a challenge to colour! I coloured them with Promarkers and Flexmarkers, then cut round it with a nestie. I then chose My Minds Eye Stella papers I love but I havent really used much yet. I used Coredinations card which complimented these colours to cut a scalloped oval with a nestie. I also used Kraft card as my base under the papers. I arranged my papers then added American Crafts Polka dot ribbon, three buttons, a 3D Butterfly and a trail of pearls from the butterfly to show its path.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Great Impressions Stamps: Walk on the Wild Side
Penny Black at Allsorts: Wings or Whiskers
