Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #22


Hello! It's the 14th of the month so that means it is time for our monthly Stampers Anonymous Team blog hop - we are up to number 22 already! Gosh that's gone fast! 

This month is a sketch challenge! I love these challenges as they make you think outside the box and come up with something that perhaps you would not normally choose. 

And after quite a few attempts and changes of stamp sets this is what I came up with!

I haven't given this stamp set enough love so I decided to have a play and see what I could create. The bubbles stamp makes a great background so I stamped those in bermuda bay and gorgeous grape ink. 
I also stamped these onto a white circle for the focal piece.

I love the silver edges ribbon - which actually comes white. I coloured it with my blends - then I know I have perfectly matched ribbon every time!  

I used the butterfly gala stamp set for the butterfly (and the sentiment) and punched it out with the butterfly duet punch. Then I coated it with wink of stella for some shimmer.

I finished off the card by flicking some highland heather ink and adding some rhinestones then layered  the panels and I was done! 

I actually think I need to make some more of these cards to send to friends who are doing it touch at the moment to let them know I care. 

Hop on over to Kylie's blog to see what she has created.
