STAMPlorations September Sketch Challenge

I have a card today using the STAMPlorations Sketch.
 I started by placing the Gridlocked Stencil and partially masking it off. Then spritzed with this tool.
Then inked some color
 and stamped a few words,
 Next I stamped several butterflies from Trendy Butterflies.
 Now the fun part, Lifting the stencil up and seeing the result:)
 I decided to stamp the butterflies again without the stencil.

 Then a sentiment was added, using BOLD SENTIMENTS: Hashtag Authentic 
and selectively inking the AN from the word ANNIVERSARY from this set.

I could not resist putting some musical WASHI tape to finish off the card:)
NOTE to Shery, a stamp set with various musical notes and graphs would be a SUPER set to see from STAMPlorations:)

Here is the original Sketch:
Be sure to stop by and check out the GUEST DT's cards.
