It's September Sneak Peek Day #2 at The Alley Way Stamps!  The new set I used on my card today is called Calypso...what fabulous builders and borders are in this'll love them!

The Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger: Honoring Ombre was SO yummy that I couldn't resist playing along...the shades of purple, a little ombre, and a precious butterfly....irresistible!  The retrosketches #78 was so perfect to feature a little scrappy ombre technique, too...and Anything Goes over at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge!
