Happy Birthday ~ Skipping Stones


Hello my friends!! Are you enjoying the Holiday season? I'm mostly ready to go. All the presents are wrapped and under the tree, however, I still haven't sent out my Christmas cards. Sad I know. I was done with all my shopping weeks ago, even the decorating. I've just been too lazy to get my short letter and cards out. That's on my to do list for tomorrow. :)

I have a Skipping Stones Designs Sketch card to share with you today. You can find the sketch, as well as some samples from the SSD dt and their guest designers, HERE.

I used two different sets, although one is VERY hard to see. It nearly disappeared when it dried. I stamped the flower medallion, from the set Victorian Summer, with amuse Amethyst ink on the main panel bg, and stamped the sentiment "Happy Birthday" (Dandelion Dreams) with Smokey Gray Versafine over it.

I made the loopy flower out of felt (Tutorial), and the beautiful diecut butterfly is from Cheery lynn designs.


That's it for me today.
I hope you're soaking in all the joys of this season!!
Happy Stamping!!
