You are AMAZING...Guest Designer~Stamplorations Bi-Weekly Sketch Challenge #34, STAMPlorations Anything Goes, TIME OUT Challenge #31~Grunge

Good  Monday Morning, All...and what a fabulous Monday it is here in Canada. DAY OFF!

Actually, while a holiday is a very good thing, I'm exponentially stoked, excited and honoured even more to be Guest Designing for STAMPlorations! THANK YOU so much, Shery and the DT for inviting me to play along with  you in this challenge


This two weeks' STAMPlorations Bi-Weekly Sketch Challenge #34 is fabulous (and challenging!) - and I must say, I did some major happy dancing when I saw it.  Butterflies...not one, but four!  Another *thank you* to Shery!


My take on the sketch is ‘quite’ literal, although I didn’t get the scalloped edges as illustrated on the first border as I’d hoped…my masking needs practice!  Everything, except for the butterfly die cuts (I am soooo terrible at fussy cutting) is STAMPlorations, with the Mixed Media Grunge set taking top billing (including the stamping on the butterflies) and Bold Sentiments: Hashtag Authentic as supporting cast.  


Please head on over (or, if you've already been, thank you for coming my way) to see how the amazing STAMPlorations team has interpreted this sketch.  One thing guaranteed: you'll be ultra impressed!  I'm off to see for myself...come along with me...and we'll leave them some love as we journey, too.

I'm also sharing my card at STAMPlorations Anything Goes


and TIME OUT Challenges #31~Grunge (can you believe it...early!  After missing out on two last time, I've learned my lesson. Sort of *grin*)

I'm looking forward to your takes on this ultra-cool sketch.  See you in the gallery!

Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!
Hugs,
