It's a "Dies &/or Punches" Challenge for DigiStamps4Joy

It's the middle of challenge #86 at DigiStamps4Joy.  Get out those dies &/or punches and join us!  I used this digi from the DigiStamps4Joy store:
For the first time, I digitally merged the stamp, using it like a mask. I re-sized, rotated, and hid flowers until I got the look I wanted. Here's what I created:

I colored the cosmos flowers with Copic markers, used a variety of Spellbinders dies, and a Cheery Lynn butterfly die, added a few pearls from my stash, a little yellow Stickles in the center of the flowers, and stamped a sentiment from Unity Stamp Company. The papers are a My Mind's Eye 6x6 pad, "Ooh, La, La". Voila!  My first digital merge!

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Card Mania Challenge -- Use a Sentiment
Crafting From the Heart --Use flowers
Craftin' Desert Divas -- use glitter (Stickles glitter glue)
