Things With Wings - Simon Says Stamp DT

Good afternoon lovely peeps!
Oh my goodness this heat! I worked a 12.5 hour shift yesterday on the hottest day of the year & I've never seen staff looking so shattered at the end of a long day. My garden seems to be enjoying all the sunshine & is looking so pretty, & I love being outside watering the garden late in the evening when the heat cools down.

It's Wednesday which means -
 at
& this week our challenge is
Things With Wings

 This week my lovely teamies & I are featuring some fabulous
Doodlebug
    goodies on our cards. You don't have to use them to enter our challenge but we'd love to see them if you do.
As you know I like to switch styles of card making  for different cards / products so today's DT card has been created in the shabby chic look as I haven't made a card in this style for a while.

I've used lots of lovely Simon exclusive products to create this card (all linked in Inlinkz) & as our challenge is "Things With Wings" naturally I pulled out my absolute favourite butterfly dies and have used the largest of the sizes, "Devonshire" & Paulina.

My paper edges have been lightly distressed using Pumice Stone distress ink & scissors, & on the hydrangeas & butterflies I've used SSS Surf Blue ink. The sentiment is from the SSS "Happy Block Greetings" stamp set & I stamped "Follow Your" in Audrey Blue ink & the "Dreams" in Surf Blue ink which is a slightly softer blue than the Audrey Blue.

I've been busy playing with my air dry / paper clay & tried out my new WOW Shabby Rose & Butterfly Trio silicone molds & once dry I lightly distressed these with Pumice Stine distress ink.

As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous
