A French Flutterby Day

Hi Everyone! It is Wednesday and that means another Flutterby day at Dannis Dreams. For my card today I took out an OLD (for me!!) SU set called Merci. I just love this little butterfly which I stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with my copics. I then cut it out and added alittle bling in a few areas. I paired this "French" set with some Parisianne Summer Paper for a real French Flair!! LOL. My flowers are from Prima, the leaves are cut out with my tiny leaves die from SU and my sentiment was cut out with my oval and scalloped oval punches from SU. Oh and my ribbon is Pink Pirouette from SU. So technically except for those Primas this is a real SU card. Whoo Hoo!!

You can play along also with Flutterby Wednesday. Just create a card with a butterfly or fairy and upload it to either SCS or PCP with keyword FBW.

This week our guest designer is the AMAZING Cindy Haffner. That girl knows how to make a gorgeous card!! I follow her blog all the time. Our featured stamper this week is also an AWESOME crafter. Our own Chris. I cant think of enough wonderful adjectives to praise her work. You need to go check out both of thier blogs.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a fantastic day!!
