Thinking Of You - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Hello lovely peeps!
The days seem to be whizzing by for me at the moment & I am seriously behind in creating Christmas cards! I love making Christmas cards & every year I plan to be organised and create cards throughout the year & the Winter months go well, but the weather warms up, the sun comes out, & my plans go to pot lol.

I have achieved something on my crafty bucket list this week! I have learn to crochet at long last! Nothing complicated mind you, just roses but it's a start :)

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

& this week our challenge is
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog
We are showcasing our very own gorgeous
 products on our cards this week.
You don’t have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used
Don't forget you can enter our challenge 5 times and there is no limit to how many challenges you combine your entry with.

Do you use Instagram ?  If so, please add #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too. 

I've featured some beautiful Hero Arts stamps from a set called Antique Engravings which I purchased a few weeks ago but I can't find them in store at the moment, so I have linked up another stamp set called Papillions which has one of these pretty butterflies in. I've discovered some gorgeous new super sparkly glitter by Hero Arts which I have covered the butterflies in & as you know sparkle makes me happy lol.

Today's card has been lightly distressed with Antique Linen distress ink and scissors. The hearts background paper has been created using Simon Says Stamps lovely Drawn Hearts stamp & Khaki ink, & the sentiment is from the Handwritten Sentiments set.

The copic colours I've used are -
Large butterfly - YR07, YR04, YR01, YR00 / E33, E31, E30 / E87, E84, E81 / N5, N3, N1.
