Caardvarks 'Tiffany Doodles' Challenge

Hi, everyone!
 This morning, I tried to make a card for the Caardvarks 'Tiffany Doodles' Challenge to use the waiting time for some inquiries to my clients, and just finished it! Though I knew the digital stamps by Tiffany Doodles since a few of my blog and Frickr friends have been the DT members, I used it to catch an opportunity for the first time.
 Thank you Caardvarks and Tiffany Doodles for the wonderful challenge! :)

Here is my card.

This is a partial closeup.

 I thought, 'let's cash in on this'. So, I chose a free downloadable 'Velvet Flower stamp'. Love this GORGEOUS flower! :) Actually, I thought it quite a while, "which data should I choose among those pretty digital stamps?".But I was so satisfied with the result. (I folllow McDonald's advertisement, 'Everything it's cracked up to be.' *giggle* Really, I enjoyed creating and loved this a little tall card! Finished size is 2.5"w x 6.5"h.)
 All the coloring for the flower is by Copic markers. Mainly I used extrafine‐pointed nibs to draw the fine lines, those were super fine and standard fine. And the sentiment and the butterfly are physical stamps by Hero Arts.

*I wanted to possess the present white space above the flower image, so I finished this card a little out of the sample sketch.
