may all your wishes come true...

This morning I get to share a card made with some new stamps I just discovered - they are called Skipping Stones Design and have some adorable sets. AND the best part is that they are from my tiny little home town in South Dakota! I'm so happy to be supporting them!
This is a card made with their Dandelion Dreams stamp set. I used the saying, "May all your dreams come true" in the background stamped vertically with Papertrey Ink's Fresh Snow ink. Then used some paper, chipboard and a die cut from My Mind's Eye - Stella & Rose. I actually have a layout kit coming out in a few days with this My Mind's Eye line, so stay tuned!!
The butterflies and "happy birthday" are also from the stamp set. Happy Birthday is stamped with Papertrey Ink's Dark Chocolate ink. I stamped the butterflies with Jenni Bowlin inks, including Cough Syrup (red) and Chewing Gum (pink), then also used Papertrey Ink's Berry Sorbet (center butterflies). I wanted the butterflies to go from dark to light. (or light to dark!)

Skipping Stones is giving YOU - my blog readers - 20% off this week! Just enter the code SAVE20 when you check out. The code is good until next Tuesday at midnight.
