SSD #132 Sketch Challenge & Blog Hop

Good Morning, everyone!!!
 This is my 2nd post for today........and also a 2nd challenge for today.  If you are looking for the Paper and Such challenge, click HERE!

Today SkippingStones Design is excited to be releasing another BEAUTIFUL stamp set!  It is called Breathtaking Butterflies and it is a must have!!!  I love butterflies and don't think I can ever have too many, but these are so nice because you really don't need to color them.  They are so full of detail that you can leave them alone!

  If you came from Wendy Price's Blog you are already on track!  If not, you may want to hop on back to Skipping Stones Designs to join in on ALL the fun! 

Don't forget to leave comments!  Skipping Stones Design will be giving away one stamp set to a lucky winner!

Breathtaking Butterflies in action!

The grays and yellows were perfect in pairing the butterfly with the sunflowers and the gray fence.  You may have to click to enlarge this picture in order to see the wonderful saying. 

When you pull out the tag, you can see the "With Sympathy" sentiment that is hiding in the pocket.

Here's a peek at the entire set!

If you'd like to get some more inspiration, head on over to Megan Aaron's blog and see what gorgeous creation she has made for the hop.  Remember to leave some blog love so that you have more chances to win this set!

Now it's YOUR turn!  Join in the sketch challenge this week by creating a card using the featured sketch and link up to the Skipping Stones site for your chance to win FREE stamps!  You don't have to use Skipping Stones Stamps, but we love it when you do!

this yellow and gray combo is so elegant!! I would never have thought to use it for a sympathy card (actually, wouldn't have thought to use it at all), but it is so perfect. And I love how you just stamped the images in multiples to let their beauty shine through.
