Yellow Wings

Thanks for sticking with me! I've made it home from my vacation, and a wonderful one at that! In our flurry of complications before we left,  I had to leave all my crafty things behind-yikes!


I'm here to show you a card that I made this morning for the Skipping Stones Design Sketch Challenge, a lovely sketch created by Angi Barrs, our sketch artist for the month of March!

I used the beautiful butterfly and barely there sentiment from Healing Wings, as well as a soon to be released set! My photo doesn't show, but the butterfly has a light touch of clear glitter on the wings. My color choices came from the amazing palette over at CR84FN.



This month at Skipping Stones Design, we are also welcoming two amazing guest designers, A.J. Otto and  Amy Tsuruta.  And to make things even better, Skipping Stones Design has two new design team members, Lindsay Amrhein and Pamela Young! Skipping Stones Design has also teamed up with month with Scor-Pal for the entire month! For all the challenge rules and details, as well as inspiration from the design team, please stop over at the Skipping Stones Design blog!
