B is for Butterfly and some exciting news!

Aahhhh I am so excited to finally be able so share this news with you all. I have been invited to join the amazing ABC challenges design team!

 With it being a twice a month challenge -on the 1st and the 15th, it's just perfect for me and my schedule. I just had to apply and I feel so lucky to have been asked to join!  And I love the whole ABC idea for challenges. I know I am going to have so much fun!

 If you haven't played along yet at ABC I hope you'll start marking your calendars, we are having some amazing sponsors lined up and some really fun challenges too.

For this challenge there is an amazing prize up for grabs from Bunny Zoe Crafts, and they have so many different stamp companies to choose from! Go check them out, you won't be disappointed!

We are at letter B (the team had just recently finished the whole alphabet) and our challenge is

B is for Butterfly

I thought this adorable stamp from Whimsy Stamps, available here at Bunny Zoe Crafts would be perfect to use for this challenge, as I only had a chance to use it once before.

 I colored the cuties with my Faber Castell Polychromos Pencils and blended with baby oil. Their faces were colored with copics.

The papers are from Prima Marketing.
I really love this sketch, it was inspired by a recent sketch from the sweet stop sketch challenge blog.

The design is actually really simple, as you can see, I embellished with only a couple of butterflies (MS punch), and some twine. Of course I had to add glitter, and since I fixed my sewing machine I did some sewing too.

The sentiment is from the set  "A touch of elegant furniture" by Whimsy's Raindrop Echo designs, and it is also available here at Bunny Zoe Crafts for those of you in Europe.

I would like to combine my card with the following challenges:
  Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope I inspired you to get out your butterfly themed stamps or punches, or papers, and that you'll play along at ABC with us. Can't wait to see your creation!

 Have a wonderful day and

happy stamping!
