Stamp Something Challenge

Happy Friday and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Hope you had a wonderful week and that you can enjoy the winter weather a little bit. We went sledding with the kids yesterday, we had so much fun!

It is time for another challenge at Stamp Something!

This week we are making it very easy on everyone, as our theme is

"Anything goes".


Our wonderful sponsor this week is Whimsy Stamps offering a fabulous prize to one lucky winner.
If you haven't been to their store recently be sure to do so, there is such a variety to choose from, with art from several artists, there is something for everyone. They have images in rubber and digi and even some pre-colored digis.


For my card I used a couple of brand new images just released yesterday from Meljen's Designs available at Whimsy Stamps. You can find both of the images here.

The images were colored using derwent coloursoft pencils and then I blended with some odorless mineral spirit.
My papers are all from Stampin Up, soft sky card stock and prints designer paper. Such a pretty color! The butterflies were also just released yesterday, and one thing I love about digis is that I can size them any way I want to. I printed these butterflies really small so I could use them as embellishments. I applied some stickles to the wings and also the flower centers.

I combined a few other challenges with this one,

That's all for today, hope you'll play along this week!

Be sure to check back here tomorrow for the very first Penny Black @ All sorts blog hop with lots of amazing prizes to be won!

Have a great day!!
