There is a gorgeous new challenge over at the One Stitch At A Time challenge blog here and its called Anything Goes with Wings. You can interpretate this in different ways be it a butterfly, a bird, a fairy or an insect, just about anything with wings.

For my card this week I chose Panda Bear Designs papers called Butterflies and you can find it here. I used two sheets from the paper pack that complimented each other. The peach colours has beautiful soft images of butterflies and swirls that my camera just couldn't see,  I cut the outline shape from a Sue Wilson die and the sentiment, designed by Jane of Coosty Creations, was die cut with a Spellbinders die. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the leaves are from my favourite Memory Box die. The little butterflies are from Spellbinders too.

Please pop over and see the fabulous cards my teamies have created with the theme this week. There is a prize for the winning entry of $10 dollars to spend in the store.

Please let me know with a comment if you pop in, I see lots of people visiting but never know just who you might be!

Anything Goes With Distressing

Time for a lovely new challenge on the One Stitch At A Time Challenge blog (OSSAT) and you can find it here. We'd love to see your designs featuring distressing of any kind, distressed edges , inks, chalks etc.  The winner of the challenge will be announced very soon and there will be a prize to spend in the Stitchy Bear store here.

For my card this week I have used another of the fabulous shoes in the IkeSart set of four fabulous shoes.

I've inked the edges of my card with Memento's London Fog ink. I've printed and used the positive and negative sides of a French Script design from Pink Petticoat that are sadly unavailable anymore. I've coloured the shoe with various shades of Copic Cool Grey and added just a touch of Promarker Hot Pink for the nails.  Finished with a little Card Candy. I'm putting this card away for Halloween!
