Just for You

Yeah!  Spring is here and I just love spring, it is my most favourite season of all, flowers blooming, birds busy making nests and lots of butterflies and dragonflies flitting around the garden.

September is also the start of a new "Anything Goes" challenge at Bizzy Becs and the card I made features a Darkroom Door stamp "Butterfly" which I have coloured with Distress Stains (Rusty Hinge, Scattered Straw, Squeezed Lemonade, Peacock Feathers, Peeled Paint and Broken China).  I have also used Darkroom Doors Texture Stamp "French Script"  for behind the Butterfly and Garden Greetings for the sentiment.  I also used the Distress Stains to dye the silk ribbon.  It is interesting to note that even through I used the same colours as I coloured the Butterfly with,  when combined onto the ribbon it has gone a bit more green that I had hoped - note to self a bit more blue next time.

There is another fabulous prize up for grabs this month for our lucky winner a Die-Namites Die - kindly donated by Bizzy Becs online store, so please join us for this months challenge, we love seeing your creations.  Before you do check out the Design Teams creations and welcome our new DT member Mandy.

Thanks for dropping by and happy crafting.
