High Hopes Challenge - Flutterbys

Happy Mothering Sunday to all Mum's in the UK and Ireland. Hope you have a wonderful relaxing day and are spoiled rotten!

This week over at the High Hopes blog our wonderful Diva Amy L has a fun challenge called Flutterbys. Basically Amy would like to see our cards or creations using our winged friends - butterflies, bees, birds, ladybugs, dragons, angels, fairies etc... check out the High Hopes blog for inspiration and you will even find a flying monkey!!!! Yep.. you heard that right! lol.

Remember to enter our challenges you need to use High Hopes Rubber Stamps!!!

The random winner of this challenge will receive the below stamp - Bunny Masterpiece.

For my card this week I have inked up this cute stamp Lily Spring Fairy. Lily has been coloured with Prismacolor pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend. I also added a little stardust stickles to the leaves on her outfit and LOTS of stickles to the Hyndrangea flower. Again I have used the beautiful springy papers from the Basic Grey Green at Heart paper pad. The butterflies have been cut from the Martha Stewart Classic butterfly punch. My favourite flat back pearls added to the butterflies bodies and flower center to finish.

I used a great sketch from Week 10 over at the Create4fun Challenge blog. Love all the layering on this one!

If you want to play along and are looking to add some High Hopes stamps to your collection I have a fantastic selection over in my store. I ship worldwide too!

Looking forward to a relaxing crafty day! Hubbie is cooking me a nice (I hope ;-) roast dinner :-)

Have a great day!
