Black and Blue Crafting

When I read the challenge at Ike's World Challenge blog, I didn't know if I were up to it! Patterned paper is my middle name!! LOL
My box of re-discovered papers still sits on my desk, and is amazingly getting lighter every day! Since I had the papers and (always) my Copics at hand, I QUICKLY found a stitched piece of cardstock. I have also placed a small file box on my table where I have been tossing excess supplies with which I may create within the week. and die-cut. So I managed to create this card using NO PATTERNED PAPERS and super fast, which for me was stepping way out of my comfort zone.
I colored up this fantastic Ike's Art image called Muse 6 using Copics, giving her some interesting stripes in her hair (I was just in that mood). Then I adhered to a stitched piece of cardstock a die-cut that was given to me in a swap before adding my fussy-cut image.
I embellished simply with a butterfly a few pearls and a sentiment. I kept the card two-toned, although the blue paper of the sentiment and the diecut embellie are also blue but hard to tell in my photo.
Since I placed my
I am entering my card in Ike's World Challenge blog, as well as other challenges:
