Skipping Stones Design :: Guest Designer :: SSD22

Hey Everyone! I promised you a card today and like magic, here it is! :) Today's card is inspired by a Skipping Stones Design sketch. It is my last card posted as a guest designer with the team. It has been wonderful working with Skipping Stones and their products. As you can see, I can't get enough of the butterflies. They're always just so much fun! The Healing Wings set is so great. I love the sentiments (and pretty font) and the large butterflies in different styles. This set really makes me happy and I can't stop reaching for it! Seriously, I'm not trying to 'sell' the set, I'm just sharing how much I like it! There are many more I like in the store too, I just have to narrow down my selection and make a choice! So, make sure you stop over to the blog today to check out what all of the other designers created using this great sketch, created by Kimberly Crawford.

Thanks so much for checking me out today!

  1. Create an A2 card base from lemon tart cardstock.
  2. Trim patterned paper block, ink, and mat on kraft cardstock.
  3. Tie twine around multiple times and secure in the back.
