Sketch and Stash Challenge , Becky's Sketch :-)

Good Morning and time for a new challenge over on the Sketch and Stash Challenge :-) becky has made a lovely sketch for you to follow, I am sure you will all like this one :-) We also like to know what your new or neglected stash is too :-)

We are being sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp and one lucky entrant will win a $20 spree to the Simon says Stamp Store :-) Heidi will pay the shipping costs too :-)

and this is the fabby sketch :-)

I used my fairly new , but neglected Hero Arts Silhouette Flower cling stamp. I must admit I do love the cling ones ,, easy to use and store :-) I inked the stamp with pink chalk ink, then stamped over it with a dry script stamp, this just removed some of the ink. I then stamped it again on a separate piece of card and stuck them together to make the stalks a little longer as this is a square stamp, and covered the join with the ribbon.

The papers I think are Basic Grey, they were a RAK from a buddy so not quite sure, the flowers are Prima and I have had them in my drawer FOREVER !! I do love them tho and was just waiting for the right card to use them on :-) For the circle bit I inked a script cuttlebug folder with the same ink and cuttlebugged it :-) The gorgeous butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch, I punched it in white card ,, which was coloured with the same pink chalk and then the vellum was inked, sprinkled with sparkle EP and punched too. The pearls are from Kaiser Craft.

I am entering this into the following challenges :-

Allsorts ,,,,,,,,Strawberries and Cream

Create4Fun,,,, Black/White + one colour

Crafty Calendar ,,,,,, Bugs and beasties with the optional extra of wings :-)
