New Challenge at Skipping Stones Design!

Happy Tuesday everyone! Today is the last sketch challenge provided by Belinda Chang. Her sketches have been so much fun this month. You can still visit Belinda on her blog and check out all of her amazing work.
Here is this weeks sketch!My card this week features a beautiful stamp and sentiment from the Skipping Stones Design set called "Healing Wings". If you haven't had a chance to see this set, you must go! The sentiments are beautiful and versatile and the butterflies have endless possibilities.
I stamped the butterfly on watercolor paper and inked it with distress inks. I then coated the butterfly with thick embossing powder heated and repeated 3 times. Once cool I cracked the powder to create an antique look.
The papers I used this week were DCWV La Creme collection. I just love this paper! It is thick and some of the sheets are flocked.
I used circle nestabilities and one of the tags from the spellbinders fancy tags collection.
Basic Grey Opaline pearls complete the card!

I can't wait to see your creations using this beautiful sketch.
