Fluttering by again!!

Hi and welcome to Flutter By Wednesday over at Dannis Dreams. Every Wednesday the Flutterby Team creates new cards with either Butterflies or Fairies. This week I had fun with my card because my very last bella sistah (Hi Carrie!!) sent me this awesome pack of paper from DCWV called Blossoms and Butterflies. It is gorgeous and fun and all the paper has butterflies on them so I worked my card today around the paper. I hope you can see the little border of brown butterflies in the middle and over to the right, there is a little silver butterfly embossed into the paper with the swirls. Then all I did was stamp my image which is from My Favorite Things onto PTI White Cardstock. Colored with copics and used some Crystal Effects on the water in the vase. I cut my image out with my circle nesties and mounted it to a Bashful Blue circle also cut with my nesties. Then I popped that up with dimensionals. Stamped and cut out my sentiment, also from My Favorite Things, with my oval punches. THEN behind my sentiment I cut out of Chocolate Brown paper some little leaves using my die from SU and popped up a butterfly on the leaves which I stamped onto Georgia Pacific paper, colored with my copics and glitter pen, and cut out. Voila!! It was so strange not to use any ribbon on my card but really the paper was decorative enough.

You can play along with Flutterby Wednesday also!! It is fun so come along and join us. All you have to do is make your flutterby card and post to SCS or PCP using the keyword FBW.
