Happy 6th Birthday Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge DT Card

Hello peeps!
It's been a busy morning trying to rescue six of our fences that took a battering in the gales. All I really wanted to do was decorate my nice new planner & colour the new Gorjuss Girl stamps that now live with me, I just can't wait to get my copics on them :) 

It's Wednesday which means ..........

This was one of those nice well behaved cards that just kind of "happened" lol.
I was sat looking at my little treasure chest full of Simon Says Stamp stamps and my Artbin full of Simon's dies debating which I wanted to use & I purposely put to one side my favourite beautiful butterfly dies as I find I always feature them, & then inspiration struck & I was a woman on a mission lol.

To mark this special occasion Simon Says Stamp will be giving away not 1 but 6 $50 vouchers to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store !

As it's a special challenge and I was having trouble deciding which goodies to use I have made another card :)
I have used Simon's "Keep Swimming" stamps and dies set on this little card and I've created my own stencil using Simon's "Full Card Bubbles". This was nice and easy to do, I die cut the Full Card Bubbles twice & then glued them together as I wanted the bubbles to have lots of dimension, and then swiped across my homemade stencil with embossing paste & sprinkled it with glitter :)
The copic colours I've used are -
Treasure Chest - E44, E43, E41 / Y28, Y26, Y21, Fish - BG13, BG11, BG000 / G40, G21, G000 / C3, C1, RV00, BV0000.
 That's me finished for today peeps, thanks for stopping by
