Hello, friends! Today Skipping Stones Design is excited to be releasing another BEAUTIFUL stamp set! It is called Beautiful Botanicals and it is a must have!!! And, even better, Skipping Stones has joined up with the fabulous Scor-Pal team for an amazing blog hop! The hop will begins at the Scor-Pal blog and will finish off at the Skipping Stones blog! If you came from Kandi's blog you are already on track! If no, you may want to hop on back to Scor-Pal to join in on ALL the fun!

Don't forget to leave comments! Skipping Stones Design will be giving away one stamp set to a lucky winner and Scor-Pal is giving away a Scor-Buddy, so there is lots to win!

I stamped the leaf image in Versamark and embossed it in white EP. Next I added a wash of green watercolors to the paper, wiping the extra off the embossed image.

To create the rosette, I cut a strip of paper 1 inch wide using the wavy border option on my trimmer. Using the Scor-Buddy I scored it every 1/4 inch all the way down the length of the strip. Fold it in a valley/mountain fold. Glue the ends together. Carefully press the shape together forming a rosette. Adhere to a piece of scrap paper with hot glue.

The Butterfly was colored with copics, covered in wet adhesive and coated with glitter. 

Now it's YOUR turn! Join in the sketch challenge this week by creating a card using the featured sketch and link up to the Skipping Stones site for your chance to win FREE stamps! You don't have to use Skipping Stones Stamps, but we love when you do! Do you have a Scor-Pal or Scor-Buddy? We would love to see you rocking those, too!!! We ask that you don't combine the challenge with more than five total in your post (including SSD) and please link back here! Have fun! Your next stop on the hop is to head on over to the Skipping Stones Design blog!

A HUGE thank you to Scor-Pal for providing Scor-Buddies to the Skipping Stones Design Team! We LOVE THEM!!!!

Here is the complete hop order for you, just in case!
