Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #212

Hi there!  Time for another sketch challenge at the Sweet Stop!  Here is this week's sketch:
Recently, I watched Jill Foster create wonderful tags using Pan Pastels and Inchies, but as I don't own any pastels or chalks, I have tried using Perfect Pearls with Perfect Pearls Medium.  I love how these have turned out, so today, I tried that technique on my focal circle.  I used a stencil by The Crafters Workshop for most of the swirls and butterfly images, then added a little stamping (little dots and music notes) from the mini background stamps in the Dienamics set called 'By the Numbers'.  It is not possible to see in the photo, but there is a lovely shimmery look to this piece.  I cut it out using Spellbinders Lacy Circles, and adhered it to the brown and cream spot dp from the Amy Tangerine pad:  Ready Set Go.  For embellishment, I stamped and heat embossed the 3 Butterflies from the SnS set New Beginnings with brown ink and clear embossing powder, and cut them out with the coordinating die.  I coloured the parts not embossed with Distress stains in blue and adhered them around the top of the circle.  The sentiment was stamped and embossed onto vellum, and adhered over a gold paper strip, and punched flowers were added.
