We Love our Flutterby Wednesdays!!

I can't believe it's Flutterby Wednesday again!! Where does the time go??

Our challenge this week was to use a sketch, any sketch along with a fairy or butterfly on our project. Please be sure to identify the sketch that you use and give proper credit where it is due. Our featured stamper this week is Lelia. Be sure to stop by and give her some luv!! I believe the sketch I used for my card came from Magnolia-licious but I'm not sure. I previously used this card for Flutterby Wednesday but I re-posted it because I am using it for the Roses on Paper color challenge #13. The challenge is to use Pink, Yellow and Green on our cards. I picked it because it is one of my favorites and Summer is also having a GDT call for the new Belles n' Whistles stamps that she will be carrying soon. The Belles n' Whistles stamp line promises to be super cute and the Belles n' Whistles store will be opening in July. You know we love us some new stamps to play with!!! LOL

For my card this week, I used Doodlebug patterned paper and Bazzill and Bo Bunny cardstock. I also used this adorable new Magnolia stamp from the Chasing Butterflies collection that I got from Summer at Roses on Paper. Thanks Summer!! I think this image is just the sweetest!

I colored my image with my copics, painted on some Shimmerz and used a white Inkessentials gel pen for detail. I also cut my yellow and pink dotted (Bo Bunny) cardstock with my nesties. I cut out my image and popped it up with pop dots. I also used pop dots on my yellow cardstock. I embossed the yellow piece with my Cuttlebug embossing folder and inked the edges with pink ink.

My sentiment is a Sugar Nellie stamp. I inked the edges of my sentiment, put a tiny little Prima flower in the center along with a tiny jewel. I put some yellow flowers on my card that I had in my stash. I inked the edges with pink ink and put a little bit of Stickles on the "pearl" in the center. I cut a small flourish with my Sizzix Sizzlet die and put it around the flowers. I used Stickles to add some bling to them and make them pop. IRL they are super glittery!

This was a really great challenge. We'd love to see you play along this week! The challenge this week is to use a sketch, any sketch along with a fairy or butterfly on your project. Please be sure to identify the sketch that you use and give proper credit where it is due.

Remember, it must include a butterfly or fairy. If you post to SCS or PCP be sure to use the keyword FBW so that we can find your beautiful creations.
