SCRSC80: Cocktails & Butterflies

Hi everyone and happy Tuesday!

Have you been enjoying the lovely mini heatwave we've been having here in the UK? I can't believe it went from being cold enough for continual central heating to almost 30C in a matter of days! Phew! I do love the sunshine - I think it makes everything feel better and brighter - but I'm not mad on 30C heat with high humidity. Shame we're not rich enough to live by the sea ! I can just imagine sitting on a veranda with a glass of something cool with the sun beating down and the cool sea breeze gently blowing ...... Well, one can dream, lol!

It's week 2 of Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge #80 and so time for me to share my challenge card today. Our challenge this fortnight is an inspiration challenge ...

For my challenge card I inked up Cocktail Emily and paired her with some B&W paper from my Echo Park Yours Truly 6x6 pad and some purple and aqua paper & card. My blue buttons are from http://www.sewsweet.co.uk/50g-mixed-buttons-26-c.asp and I also added some tiny punched butterflies to echo the butterfly pattern on the umbrella in the photo! I followed the fabby sketch #167 over at Card Patterns.

Our challenge is open to all players. Each challenge a random winner will be chosen who will receive a SCRS rubber stamp. In order to qualify for a prize, you must use a Sparkle Creations image on your creation. To play along in our challenge, upload a photo of your project and provide a direct link in the linky widget at the bottom of the SCRS challenge #80 post. Deadline for challenge #80 is Sunday 3 June @ 9PM PST (which is 5am on Monday 4 June in the UK - we are 8hrs ahead of PST).
