Loving the new The Alley Way Stamps Awesome Blossom set!  To create the background I used one of the flower images randomly stamped watercolour paper in Versamark Watermark ink then heat embossed in clear, then randomly stamped with Versamark Watermark ink and Stampin' Up Concord Crush, before swiping the entire background with Distress Ink Shaded Lilac.  The Awesome Blossom butterfly was clear embossed onto Concord Crush cardstock, then fussy cut.  I created the sentiment with a combination of The Alley Way Design Christmas Magic, Chatterbox and Alphabet Soup, heat embossed in Zing Pewter, together with some alphas from my stash.  Inspired by the purple hues at Dynamic Duos.

To celebrate The Alley Way Stamps being available directly in Australia either through Scrapbook Boutique or The Stamp Spot you have an EXTRA chance to win, if you leave a comment here you could win your very own Awesome Blossom set.
