A few months ago I was visited by a lovely lady and fellow blogger, Shelley. She owns Wild Frog Creations. The stamps are quirky, like me. I finally had a few pennies "spare" to buy a couple of the stamps. It was such a hard choice, whittling down to just the two in my budget this month. This is one of them, made into a card.

I followed the sketch over at Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog. It is a lovely, uncluttered sketchy. Just right for this stamp.

I coloured it using pencils, blended with m.o. The colours governed by the colour challenge over at Outlawz forum of pale blue, purple and creamy white. This was mounted onto creamy white c.s. after smudging the edges with pale blue pastel and the very edge rubbed with purple.

The BP is purple flowers printed onto vellum, backed with a plain pale cream plain paper. The panel is the same design printed in pale blue onto more vellum. A creamy white frame added.
Some "birds" added made from pale blue and purple quilling paper. The sentiment from the same stamp set was stamped onto some plain pale blue vellum.

The whole thing mounted onto pale blue pearlised C.S.

I am entering this into the challenges over at
Simon Says Stamp - Their sketch
Outlawz Tuesday Colour challenge - pale blue, purple, creamy white
