Captivated by Silence. Sweet Pea July 15th Challenge

Once again I have the pleasure of creating using Sweet Pea Stamps.  Honestly, there are some Sweet Pea lines that I just lovelovelove.  The stamp I used for the July 15th ATC Challenge captivated me from the moment I laid eyes on it.  I can't do it near the justice that this artist did.  I'm not sure which of the design team actually made this card, but it is incredible.

Here is the ATC before I applied it to the card:

And then on the card base:

Captivated by Silence stamp by Sweet Pea Stamps.
Papertrey's Framed Stamp Set
Papertrey Black and White Cardstock
Paper Pizazz Pattern Paper

Copics E0000, E00, E11, YG06, YG07, YG09, V04, V06, V09, BG15, BG13, BG18, B69, C1, C7, C9, E55, E57, E59, 0.
Cricut Picturesque Cartridge (Flourishes). 
Papertrey Fresh Snow Ink.
Memento Tuxedo Black.
BBP Bling

I really wanted to overplay the purple.  I love deep purple and I thought it went well with this image.  To contrast it, I wanted to use the teal for the eyes and butterfly, so the image remained dark.

 I dry brused the flourishes with Fresh Snow ink.  I thought they were boring plain black.  In my head, this made it more dramatic.

I outlined her using Papertreys Framed Set, and filled the space using gemstones the same color as her eyes.

Thanks for looking!
