Dark Royalty Sweetpea card

I found this sketch on someone's blog this morning, and thought it would be a great fun sketch to use for a Sweetpea stamp :)!  This card looks great in person but I am still not 100% liking the picture I took of it, ever have one of those issues before??  For the little circles on the sketch, I decided to put a glittery dragonfly on one and a glittery butterfly on the other one since I tried various other ideas and none of them really looked that great. Lol, just noticed I forgot to put text or a sentiment on my card...oh well :p!
I almost forgot :o! I stamped this image out twice, once on the watercolor paper and again on Vellum...I did that so I could use a wing made from Vellum on my main image. I wanted the wing to come off the page, you can sort of see it in the picture...
