Birthday Moths and New Furniture

I've used Kazan's Sketch 23 for this card, along with the Papertake Weekly 3-2-1 Recipe Challenge and the Use It! Monday Challenge No. 4 set by Judy L.
The moths (Stampabilities) received their first ink for this one, and I also christened a new clearance-aisle "Funky Circles" die from Hobby Lobby.
The left-hand green moth is actually double-layered so that he will be on a better level with the flower.

Here's a little detail of the coloring (BIC Marker for base tan color, then colored pencils):

Also I just have to crow a little bit about my wonderful curbside furniture find this morning... It was brand-new, still wrapped in its plastic (as you can see in the photo), but the furniture movers must have been careless with it because the side is chipped and the keyboard drawer is as well. A simple L-bracket fix for both. It's missing a bottom roll-out filing drawer, but that's fine as far as I'm concerned... I can do one of those Better Homes and Gardens numbers and use a cute fabric-lined basket there instead!
Here's my new desk!:

Have a great day all!
