My Flutterby Day

Good Morning!! Today is Wednesday and that means Flutterby Day over at Dannis Dreams. This weeks challenge was issued by myself to the team. To make a card using a butterfly or fairy and NO designer paper. This week I used a set from Little Paper Shop called Natures Garden. What a gorgeous set!!! I stamped my images onto PTI White Cardstock, colored with my copics, and cut them out with my oval nesties. My cardstock is Close to Cocoa and Rose Red from SU and I embossed both of them using my Swiss Dots and Swirls folders. My ribbon is from SU and my butterfly is cut out with my fiskars punch and outlined it with my Glitter Gel Pen. Sentiment was cut out using my oval punches.

If you have a chance, take a look at the rest of the teams creations for some inspiration. I am sure you will be pleased.

You can play along too. Just create your card and upload it to SCS or PCP using keyword FBW.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I am off to get ready for some company. Hope you have a fantastic day!!
