Grow in Grace

Hi there and happy Saturday!  Here's to the weekend and hopefully more time for crafting!  Today I'm sharing a card I created for this week's sketch challenge at Splitcoaststampers, which gave me a geat opportunity to combine a whole lotta Sweet 'n Sassy stamps along with some beautiful paper from Graphic 45 (Botanical Tea).

I started by very lightly stamping the Friendship Script stamp in the background of my main image.  I then layered the frame, and words, from the Seed Packet stamp set onto the background and adding some aging with my Pumice Stone Distress Ink pad.  I then die cut and stamped the butterflies (don't you just when there's a die to coordinate with a stamp?  Swoon!) from the Majestic Monarchs stamp and die set.  I colored the butterflies using Distress Markers and a water brush.  I finished by using the darling circle "long distance hug" and heart from the Vintage Postcard set.

I hope you enjoyed today's card and check out all of the those great vintage sets...love 'em all!!
