Birthday Butterflies


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the Anything Goes Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
Before moving on to the challenge we would like to remind you that we have a Design Team Call. If you are interested in joining us then CLICK HERE for more details!

Wednesday Challenge Design Team Call
This week the challenge is

Happy Birthday!

We are celebrating our 9th birthday this week so its time for a special celebration!! 🎉
The last 9 years have flown by so quickly and I know that many of you have been joining in with the challenges side the very beginning! This challenge would not be here without YOU and your support. So we would like to say a HUGE thank you and give you the opportunity of winning not one but one of NINE $50 Gift Vouchers to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store How AWESOME is that!!

We are showcasing our very own Simon Says Stamp Exclusive Products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used.

Gosh I've been with the team for nine years and I still feel maybe I'm not good enough, for example my card is quite simple but I love how it turned out even if I'm still crooked photographer.

Of course you probably guess I made the card with Oxides, Mermaid Lagoon, Squeezed Lemonade and like yesterday I think the other colour is Picked Raspberry  The background was made with a blending tool and I cut out the Simon says Stamp Happy Birthday sneakily behind the Simon says Stamp Stitched Rectangle white mat.

The Simon says stamp Clear Stamp Beautiful Day butterflies were stamped with Versamark and WOW opaque Bright White power onto a smooched oxides in the colours above, I then fussy cut them. I have quite a few gems in my stash but you can use Nuvo Crystal Drops in whatever colour you wish Simon has a rainbow of colours.

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too.
