Another Flutterby Wednesday!!!

Happy Flutterby Wednesday Everyone!!

I can't believe it's Wednesday already!! Our challenge for this week was to use yellow and orange on our cards. Along with out challenge, we have a special Guest Designer for this week!! I'm so excited!! I know you have all probably seen the incredible work of this very talented lady (drumroll please)!! LOL! It's my friend, the lovely Janna Hull!!! Yay!! I'm so happy that she is our guest this week and we welcome her with open arms or wings since it is Flutterby Wednesday!!

I also wanted to tell you that you can play along with us by simply making a butterfly card using yellow and orange and let us know that you did by tagging your PCP or SCS gallery entries with FBW46. We want to see your creations so be sure to try our challenge and if you've been playing all along, we hope you're having as much fun as we are!! Please be sure to check out our entire team and leave us some love!! You can find all of our links over on my righthand sidebar. You can also find our links on Danni's blog.

Okay, now for my card! I apologize in advance for the pictures. It was pouring down rain and I just couldn't get good shots. If it clears up, I may try to retake them and edit my post. I used sketch SC213 to create my card. I started by stamping the lovely Ginger by InStyle Stamps on white cardstock. I colored her with my Copics and used blue chalks for my little sky. Isn't this image just the cutest!! I think she is so retro and adorable and perfect for lots of occasions. I used dew drops for accent and I mounted three Prima flowers in the bottom right corner and attached a beautiful butterfly on the flowers. Doesn't it look like the butterfly just landed on the flowers?? I love that!! And look at the Shimmerz!! I used it on the butterfly and the flowers to give a little sparkle, kind of like morning dew!! I think it turned out really well! I like it! What do you think??

I decorated the inside of my card with white cardstock and the floral paper in the four corners. The DP is by Fancy Pants Designs. I didn't put a sentiment on the card because I want to wait and make sure I put the right one on.

Remember, you can play along with our challenge too. Be sure to visit all of the Flutterby girls and Janna to see all of the beautiful creations that we've made. Be sure to leave us some love!! Thank you for stopping by to visit my blog. I hope you'll come back tomorrow to see what I have to show you!! Have a wonderful day!
