Hello! Happy Tuesday! New month, new sketch designer! This month Skipping Stones has asked Belinda to create the sketches. I hope you will take a minute or two to check out her blog! I am hoping I will have a chance to play with all the fun sketches before my due date arrives. I think I have about a month left to go before Baby M makes her debut!

The sketch this week was a stretch for me as a stamper. I am a girl who likes symmetry. I like balance and as hard as I tried, the offset nature of the background kept freaking my eyes out!

I also challenged myself first by trying to use different colored inks on the main image. I decided I wanted a fresh spring look. The butterflies and sentiment on this card are from the newly released set Dandelion Dreams. Overall I think my card this week turned out "springy" looking. I hope you will try this sketch and see what you can come up with!

Stamps: Dandelion Dreams (Skipping Stones Design) Paper: Gemstones - Green (Core'dinations), Bashful Blue (SU!), Lavender Rosebuds (Paper Pizazz - Hot Off the Press), Green Gingham (Paper Pizazz - Hot Off the Press), Solar White Classic Crest (Neenah) Ink: Bashful Blue Classic (SU!), Gable Green Classic (SU!), Orchid Opulence Classic (SU!), Lavender Lace Classic (SU!)
