Make A Wish...

Do you like my new blog layout? It's nice and simple.. just like the name. lol*
I admit to having a very scary moment when I switched templates. I think I was holding my breath until everything appeared again. So far so good.
Now I just neeed to find out how to make my pictures larger.

Today I followed the sketch over at Penny Black, where it is their 100th Challenge. Wow!
They also have a fun Blog Hop and if you enter a card, you are in with the chance of winning some fabulous prizes.

I tried a new thing on this card.. instead of inking the edges of my stamped image, I left the nestie in place and coloured the inside. This leaves the edges white. A nice thing to do for a change.
I also added plenty of stickles glitter along all my stitching, on my image and the edges of the butterfly. The buttefly itself was made by drawing round a Craftwork Cards text butterfly. I couldn't use that one because I only have it in black! I hope it's ok to use it like that.

Stamp - from the Penny Black Critter Party set. Coloured with Copics.
Design Paper - My Mind'ds Eye, Pretty Please.
Ribbon, adhesive pearls and dew drops from my stash.
