Good Monday to you! Today begins a new Sketch at STAMPlorations bi-monthly challenge.
Here is my card:

    Here is the sketch:
I used a mask for the circle and stamped several poppies from BLOOM SKETCHES , one of my favorite sets:) colored with markers and distress inks. I then lifted the mask and carefully stamped one more set of poppies, and colored again.  I chose to heat embossed three large butterflies from ARTFUL FLUTTERS and TRENDY BUTTERFLIES . The smaller butterflies are simply stamped in two shades of ink.  The sentiment is from Bold Sentiments: Hello.

We have three Guest Designers foe you to enjoy:
Suchi, Robyn, and Coni 
as well as the talented STAMPlorations Challenge gals.

Hope you stop by and leave some comment LOVE and take time to play along!!
