Hop to Stop & Another Christmas Card

I finally got to Becca's Blog to check in on this year's Hop to Stop Domestic Violence.  She wrote a beautiful post & made a stunning project.  The link-up is about to close so after dinner I got out my 3 purple Tattered Angels mists & colored a panel of watercolor paper.  I stamped 2 images from Stamplorations Distressed Floral Swirls in Brilliance lavender & 3 Stamplorations Trendy Butterflies in Memento Grape Jelly. The sentiment from Verve Simply Amazing is white embossed, trimmed into a flag & mounted with foam tape. Finished off with a sprinkling of sequins.
I'm also entering Inkspirational, SSS Wednesday, Stamplorations Theme & Sketch (sketch) & Stamplorations Anything Goes.

Today was another Scramble at the Hero Arts Flickr Group & I had such fun making my card.  The stamps are all Hero Arts & I used Distress Inks for the watercolored panel.  I just realized this fits for the Always Use Rubber challenge.
Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
