Serendipity Stamps - March Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Serendipity Stamps March Blog Hop!  

This month the theme is "Circles or Dots".
Check out the SSCB here to play along.  
We are just 1/2 way through the month so you still have time!

The Design Team has an added challenge on this hop to include
Encouragement/Congratulations in our projects.

You should have arrived here from:

For my "Dots" blue layer I stamped the Beaded String Background
stamp in Versamark and sponged on Phahalo Blue PanPastel.

My big orange butterfly was stamped in Tangy Orange ink twice with
my MISTI tool then stamped one last time in Versamark.  
I clear embossed it for some shine.

Inside my card is the encouragement quote, What Lies Behind Us.
I embossed it with Versafine Onyx Black ink and clear embossing powder.

The small butterfly is cut out of patterned paper which ended up
being too busy for the fussy die cut.  So, I added some Versamark ink
to it and sponged on Chrom Oxide Green PanPastel.

Finished size is 4 1/2 square.

To enter the HOP Contest to win you can leave comments on the 
Design Team's Blogs through Sunday, March 20.  

The prize is a $20 gift certificate to Serendipity Stamps.  
Mary will announce the winner on her blog on Monday, March 21.
