Skipping Stones Sketch Challenge & Hop

Welcome to the Skipping Stones Design new release hop!! If you're a regular reader of my blog and just happened upon my section of the hop, you may want to start back at the Skipping Stones Design blog - The entire hop order is there and you never know where you might find blog candy up for grabs.... You can always refer to the list there, too, if you get lost... and they have some special offers this week, too. If you're already hopping and you've just come from Katie's blog, you're doing just fine!

Here's the sketch the team is working with this week...Here's my card -I used a floral stamp from one of the new releases. The flowers are stamped in Adirondack Willow ink, and colored with Polychromos pencils on Inchie Plus Squares from Inchie Arts.Here's a close-up on the flowers:
Aren't the new releases great? If you like what you've seen using the Heartsong 2 set, then you're in luck - Heather has given me a set of stamps to give away! I'll draw a winner from the comments on this post, so be sure to leave a comment for me if you'd like to win. Comments will close Friday at midnight EST, and the winner will be announced on Saturday, April 14th. Good luck to you!

After you leave a commet here, you'll be hopping on to JoAnn's blog - I hope you enjoy the hop!
Thanks for stopping by!

    An awesome card! I love the colors. I am trying to learn how to make cards. I thought since I did digital scrap pages making cards would be a snap. Boy, was I wrong! I hope someday to be able to make a card that looks good enough to share.
