Playing along in the Mojo 203 Sketch Challenge!

Hi there bloggie friends!  How are you?  I can't believe we're already into the 2nd week of August.  It's been busy here on the home front with the little man and all, but I got to eek out a card for this week's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge 203 in between fussy bouts and naps from my dear baby.  Here's a look at this week's sketch:
It looked too fun to pass up!  I wanted to use the Beau Chateau paper that I just got, so here's a look at the full card I came up with!
What do you think?  I'm still practicing my hand at the vintage look...I admire so many cards made in that style, but I feel like for me, I still need to work at it.  I was pleased at my attempt though.  Just need to practice some more!!  At least I had fun playing with all the elements and putting them together.  Don't you just love that doily background?  It's from the Flirtatious Specialty DSP.  What I like about it is that it's got color on one side and white on the back, so it's totally versatile!  The other side is Melon Mambo, but for this particular card, I chose to use the white side for a more muted look.  Here's a closer look at the Beautiful Butterfly die on the doily:
Hope you like it!  Here's the recipe for you:

Looks great! I am a SU demo in Texas and this is my new favorite DSP. You did a great job! I love the button idea instead of the ribbon across the corner!
