STAMPlorations Sketch #20


Today I am sharing my DT card for the new STAMPlorations Sketch Challenge

Here is the sketch -

and here is my card -

I have used three sets of stamps here - Vignette: Celebrate Artsy , Artful Flutters and Bloom Sketches: Daisy 2

This was so quick and easy. The only time consuming part was fussy cutting the butterflies. They are so worth it, though!

We have a wonderful guest designer for this challenge - Darnell. Here is a little about her

Hello! My name is Darnell Knauss (pronounced Ka-nouse). My blog is ( I started this hobby in 2002 after attending my first Stampin' Up! party and I have never looked back. After ten years making cards for family and friends inside the disgusting garage, we had the backyard relandscaped and I became the envied occupant of my sweet crafty Playhouse. I am having the time of my life sharing my cards, playing with words, and making friends with delightful people from all over the world who provide me with endless inspiration! 

Don't forget to pop on over and check out her card!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges -

Inkspirational - Flight
Stamping Sensations - Things with Wings
