wish ....

hi everyone its time for a new challenge at stamp something and the theme this week is bugs and butterflies and is sponsored by Stämpelkällan . I have chosen to use this beautiful sweet pea stamp and coloured with distress inks ,when i searched my paper mountain or some red papers i was horrified to find i didnt have any !! so i decided to make my own which was almost as much fun as colouring the image !! i used a lotv background stamp to make the flowery one and i think the other was from personal impressions not that you can see much of it now lol !! ive made a flower from a scrap of material and finished off with some fabby woc flowers , gorgeous cheery lynne swirl die and of course the butterflies courtesy of 2 martha stewart punches ,hope you can join in this week x

Gorgeous Sara, love the flower and your 'designer' paper! Can't believe you've no red papers in your stash mountain! Lol. Love that swirl, you are to blame for it selling out I think, you have no idea the amount of messages, emails etc that I've had after using it last week!! Have a lovely weekend hope you get time to craft.
