New Stamps!

Hi! I got a few new stamps at the NEC Hobbycrafts fair in November, but haven't had chance to use them yet, as they weren't Christmassy. There are a couple of 'new' challenges at the moment, so I thought I'd break out one of the NEC purchases :)

I've made the same card twice, with different colours:




I'm entering this one in the following challenges:

Fusion:

Pals Paper Arts:

City Crafter: "Butterfly, my butterfly"

Shopping Our Stash: "Something New"

The Sisterhood of Crafters: "Something Old, Something New" - New Woodware 'Grasses' stamp, old inks & butterfly stamp





I'm entering this one in the following challenges:

CAS Colours & Sketches:

MFT Card Challenges:

Crafting When We Can: "Something New"

Crafty Calendar: "Something New!

Inky Chicks: "Anything Goes"

I'm not sure which color scheme I like better. You've done a stunning job with both, and an excellent interpretation of our CC&S sketch, too! It's great to have you playing along with us again - I've missed your artwork! I hope you'll join us again soon for another challenge. :)
