Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #307

wed-newchallenge-header 

Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for the Special Lady/Girly Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

This week the challenge is...

Things that Fly

 We are using American Crafts this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some, we love to see them used :-)

 I used  Sketch Book, Zing Apricot Opaque, Baker's Twines and Twine Gold

thanks 

 For my design, I took the easy way with American Crafts pattern paper. I dry-embossed it in Swirls and Dots Stencil (notice the very subtle textures?). I then did some embossing with the butterfly and stamped the leaves with this set (Butterfly Friends). Added stamped sentiment, sequins and twines.

As always, Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!

"Gentle" is the word that comes to mind when I look at this lovely card, Virginia. The embossing reminds me a bit of soft breezes. Gorgeous colors, and a *sigh* lovely design. Bev
