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 -
& this week our challenge is
Things With Wings
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog

 This week my lovely teamies & I are featuring some fabulous
    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
