Dawn with Flowers - Bizzy Bec's August Challenge

The August challenge at Bizzy Bec's is a spin of her Blue Butterfly line of stamps so the task is to create a card or project using the colour blue and it is to include a butterfly.  In her store, Bizzy Bec is now carrying Nellie Snellen dies and stamps and I've chose to use Nellie Snellen's Dawn with Flowers.  The half-star border around the image is the Nellie Snellen Star Wreath die.  The sentiment is Whimsy Stamps Circle Postmark Sentiments, also available at Bec's.
I coloured the image with Copics and was surprised - it's not a large stamp but there is a lot of detail and colouring involved.  The little flowers are cut with a Sizzlit die and the dragonfly is one of Magnolia's Doohickey dies which I also purchased from Bizzy Bec's.  The papers are Stampin Up, and finally, I added Diamond Dust Stickles around all the edges.
