Princess Anya Meets Flutterby Wednesday!!

Happy Wednesday everyone!!! Today is Flutterby Wednesday and I had so much fun making this card! The challenge this week was to use pink on our cards. Wow, what a stretch for me, LOL! I think I use pink on everything!! I decided to make the whole card pink and of course Princess Anya's dress is gorgeous in bright pink! Princess Anya is a fun stamp from The Greeting Farm. LOVE HER!!!

I started my card with a piece of white card stock. I used Our Craft Lounge stamps to stamp that adorable tree, grass and flowers. I colored in the hearts on the tree and flowers with my copics. I pulled out my chalks and made the blue sky and greenish color on the grass and in the tree. I colored Princess Anya with my copics also. I drew in a sign post and put the sentiment on top to make a Valentine sign. I printed the clouds from CC Designs at All That Scraps and colored them with Shimmerz. I love my Shimmerz!! I also used it on the hearts on the tree, the heart on the tree trunk and Anya's crown and wand. (My camera would not cooperate!)

Once my background was sponged on with the chalks, I assembled all the pieces into a pretty little enchanted Valentine forest for Anya!! I used my oval nesties to cut the "sign" and chalked over it with pink chalk. I stamped some little flutterby's over those cute flowers! Fianlly, I used my Martha Stewart punch and punched out a butterfly from glittered cardstock. I folded her wings up and glued only her body to the card.. I popped Anya off the card for a little taste of dimension.

To finish off my card, I put a piece of white card stock on the inside and stamped those adorable flowers and butterflies in the bottom corners and colored them with my copics.

We want to see you play along with us! Make your flutterby card and if you upload to a galley such as PCP or SCS be sure to use keyword FBW43 so we can find your wonderful creation!
