Tilda Visits Flutterby Wednesday

Happy Wednesday everyone!!

It's Flutterby Wednesday and our challenge for this week was to create a card with flowers and butterflies on it. This week I'm so excited that I am the Featured Stamper for this week!! Yay (thanks Danni)! Also this week, we have a wonderful Guest Designer. Drum roll please, our guest designer this week is the lovely and super talented Maria Bell!!! Yay, Maria is so talented and if you haven't been to her blog then you should get some munchies and get comfy!! It's such a warm, cozy place of inspiration.

For this week's card I had to pull out the Basic Grey Porcelain pad (LOVE it) and ink up my brand new Tilda with Bunny (LOVE it) that I just got from Summer at Roses on Paper (thanks Summer). I think this Tilda is just adorable with her little bunny!!

Ok, about my card. I stamped Tilda on white cardstock with Black Memento ink. I colored her with copics and highlighted with a white gel pen. I used Basic Grey Porcelain paper and Bazzill cardstock. This week I thought it would be fun to use some little silver, metal butterflies on my card. I used Prima hydrangeas with brads and spacers. I also used some green lace across my card front. That's really all there is to it. Pretty simple but I like how it turned out!!

I edited my post because I realized that I forgot to put the leaves on my flowers!! I thought I would show both photos since I've already sent Danni my picture for her blog. Sorry about that, I can't seem to remember anything lately!! I used a Martha Stewart punch for my leaves.

You can play along with us simply by making a card with butterflies and flowers on it. Remember, if you upload to PCP or SCS use the keyword: FBW so we can admire your work.
