Exciting News + TSS Sketch Challenge!

Hello Bloggy friends!
For my very "exciting news" there's no one I wanted tell more then my blog followers! I have been asked to be on The Stamp Spot design team and I'm so excited to be part of such an amazingly talented team of crafty ladies! The Stamp Spot is a great company that stocks a whole range of crafting supplies and stamps - including the amazing Odd Girl Stamps + many more at real affordable prices - something that I know is important to every crafter.

The Stamp Spot blog also has monthly challenges with some great prizes up for offer. This month we have a Sketch Challenge provided by the very talented Liz Weber. Head on over and check it out for a chance to win some goodies! Here is the card I made for this month's challenge.

I'm also entering this card in the Some Odd Girl - Colour Inspiration Challenge!
I used the beautiful "bliss" stamp set from Some Odd girls, all the butterflies you see were also stamped from that set.
I made that  large rolled flower from a recycled paper bag and the smaller rose is from Wild orchid crafts.

Butterflies were stamped with evergreen bough and then embossed with clear powder. I then dipped the wings (While there were still hot) in Judikins "aquamarine twinkle blue"
