SSD #39 - Winner inside!

Happy Tuesday, sweet friends! Here comes this week's Skipping Stones Design Sketch, created by the wonderful Maren Benedict:

And here is my take on it:



I really love this poem from the "Healing Wings" Set. I thought it would fit to stamp a weed and the bird from the "Dandelion Dreams" Set and to use some Tattered Angels mist on the background (I think they look like glistening tears). That paper is from an old My Mind's Eye Collection. Come and play with us this week! You'll find all the details for this challenge here.

Now to the lucky winner of the beautiful "Timeless Textures" Stamp set! Here is Mrs. Lucky:
