A New Challenge and Gorgeous Inspiration

Hi Everyone!

This is my second post of the day; if you are looking for the Coffee Lover's Blog Hop, go HERE.
Today is the start of a new challenge at Skipping Stones Design.

Here is your gorgeous inspiration!

I used two stamp sets for this card- for the backgound I used the dandelion image from the
Dandelion Dreams and just stamped the head of the dandelion, leaving off the stem.
The butterfly and sentiment are from the Healing Wings stamp set.
I started with a very light gray water color wash background and then stamped the dandelion head in light gray.  I spritzed the background with a bit of Tattered Angels gold spritz.  The singular full dandelion flower is stamped in dark gray and then framed with a wide rectangle made with SB card matting dies.
The butterfly was stamped twice in Versamark and heat embossed and colored with Copics.  Both were fussy cut out and then glued together at their bodies.
I hope you can join us this week!  We would love to see your creation in the Skipping Stones Design Stamp and Share  Gallery!
I am linking up to Friday Mashup, 'using die cuts to create a frame' and
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge- 'no designer paper' and 
Casology- 'circles' as I used a circular flower head to make the background.
