Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #327


wed-newchallenge-header 

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

This week the challenge is...

Anything Goes

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

For my project, I used Penny Black's Florets and Heartfelt for the sentiment.
A journey
 First I stamped the butterflies in various colors with the help of MISTI. I then used the Diamond Border Die to decorate the sentiment. 

This Diamond Border is quite intricate! With a piece of vellum and green pattern paper (Tea Garden), the stamped sentiment is completed with gold strings as the final touch.

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

This beauty of a card with all its gorgeous fluttering butterflies has won my heart and then you added your exquisite focal piece with that cool diamond die cutting!!! Just super amazing!!

Virginia - this card is gorgeous! I love that some butterflies have more than one colour while others appear to be one colour. The colours play so well together. I'm not so patient when stamping/cleaning/stamping with another colour/cleaning/etc. However, looking at your beautiful work, the patience and effort clearly pay off.

It is so clever and fun how you used the butterfly stamp to make your own multi colored background! It really adds a lot of interest to the background :)

It is such a joy seeing how you create each one of your cards' background with your stamps Virginia. Not only they are breathtaking but one of a kind. These butterflies are magnificent and the sentiment paired so beautifully with them too.
