Card sketch #196 for Paper Craft Crew - polka dots & a butterfly

Here is the current Paper Craft Crew card sketch challenge #196, which I used for today's card:

Here is the card I am submitting:
The Stampin' Up items I used are:
Thoughtful Banners
Old Olive and Marina Mist cardstock
Butterflies Thinlits
Blossom Bunch Punch
Large Polka Dots Embossing Folder
Wink of Stella Clear
White and black cardstock
White ribbon

I used a sponge dauber to sponge on my background of old olive and marina mist polka dots....can you tell I love polka dots?!

Here are a couple of closeups of my card:

If you look real close at the picture above, you can see the butterfly shimmers with the Wink of Stella, and that I sponged marina mist ink on the two flowers. And that I ruched (ruffled) the ribbon.
