Skipping Stones Designs Blog Hop & Candy

Welcome! Today not only is it time for another awesome sketch by Maren at Skipping Stones Designs,but its also time to kick off the new release "Always Here" with a Blog Hop! If you just happened upon my blog today, you’ll want to go back to the beginning at Skipping Stones Design. You should have arrived from Peggy's blog. 


Blog candy alert: Aren't those butterflies gorgeous? I love the scrolls that Heather sketched into them! Want a chance to win one of the "Always Here" sets? Be sure to leave me a comment for a chance to win a set for yourself! 

For my card I used "Timeless Textures" and the new "Always Here". I embossed a sheet of white cardstock in white embossing powder with the background design in Timeless Textures and then sponged on greens and blue Distress Inks. The butterflies are from "Always Here" . I stamped them in navy on grey cardstock, inked the edges a bit with Distress ink and added some highlights of white with a gel pen. The velvet sticker is an oldie from Making Memories. 


We'd love for you to play along with the sketch and link your card at the Skipping Stones Blog. Just remember to use the keywords SSD040 if you are uploading to any online galleries. Here is this weeks sketch....
