Butterfly Kisses & Dandelion Wishes


It's been a crafty kind of weekend - rain and gale force winds! Not much else to do but hunker down and make some cards.  :) For this card I used the colours from The Colour Throwdown and a sketch from Skipping Stones Designs.  This is my first time using my Skipping Stones stamps and it's also their 100th challenge - a perfect time to join in!  I turned the sketch on it's side and used stamps from two different sets: Dandelion Dreams and Frills.  Can't wait to play with some more! 
Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White)  Bazzill Basics, (Crumb Cake)  Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Dandelions  butterflies from Dandelion Dreams, Plaid from Frills)  Skipping Stones Designs
Inks:  (Old Olive, Baja Breeze, Crumb Cake) Stampin' Up
Other:  (Baby Blue Stickles)  Ranger

This reminds me of summer Jen and I'm all for that...I'm missing it already with shorter days!
Love the dandelions blowing in the breeze and the plaid frames are a great take on the sketch design :)
