Sweet Pea Challenge


This week over at the Sweet Pea challenge blog the challenge is to follow this sketch.

You must use Sweet Pea stamps so out came the gorgeous Dance of the Butterfly.

I used a silk card so I could brayer the background. I've never really been a lover of glossy card before, but that could all change LOL

The black card is stamped with a polka dot stamp and embossed.

Have a fab Thursday :o)
