Flutter By Wednesday #6

Happy Wednesday - time for another Flutter By Card! This week our challenge was to create a card using a butterfly, buttons and sparkle. I found an old set, Bug Me by TAC with a butterfly that was perfect for adding sparkle too. Next, I decided to use an AmyR Sketch that I never had a chance to use. Then I located this wonderful BasicGrey paper and TAADAA my flutter by card was born!! I was hesitant to use this saying as I usually only put general sentiments on my card. So I have a question for you card makers out there (and PLEASE leave a comment or email me your thoughts cause I REALLY want to know this) if you use quotes or sayings on your cards when do you give them/use them? I mean are they just general "how YOU doin" (said in my best Joey voice) cards? I tend to over think things so I really want feedback here.

Below is a close up of all the sparkle on the butterfly. I was going to use glitter but didn't feel like going to bed with it all over me. So I decided to use Stickles instead.

So whatcha think? You've gotta check out the other team members blogs to see their wonderful creations as well. (The links are on the right). Also, stop by Danni's Blog to see who the guest designer is for her Flutter By Team. Remember we'd love to see your Flutter By creations - so get busy and share it with us! I know I'd love to see it! If you upload to an online gallery like SCS or PCP, use the keyword FBW44!

Of course I love this paper, it's one of favorites!! Love the cute butterly too!! I like butterflies that have lots of rrom to color and this one is perfect!! Great job!

Your sparkle is perfect. I have never used Stickles. I use Shimmerz all the time though!!

I Love the DSP you choose, and the sentiment is great!!!

I tend to be one who puts her sentiments on the inside instead of outside the card. I also tend to create a lot of my own sentiments to fit the occasion. I have so many stamp sets it is hard to remember what sentiments I have so I create what I nee for the occasion!!!!

Great job on your Flutter By card and such a cute ButterFly!!!

You did a great job on this card! I just love it!
For these type quotes/sayings, I do just send them for anytime hello's or thinking of you. Sometimes even birthday's--it's nice sometimes to receive "out of the norm" cards ya know?

Ashley Newell said...

What a super sweet card! I love all the glitter, it's fabulous!

Maria said...

Hey Michelle! such a pretty butterfly card! I love the sparkly look to the butterfly and the pretty colors!!

As for quotes. . .I use both quotes and simple sentiments, it doesn't matter to me. I think quotes are perfect for cards, front or inside.

Hey Michelle,
I think you can use quotes in a variety of ways. I use them for sympathy cards or friendship cards, birthday cards or whatever. Sometimes I put a quote on the outside and sometimes the inside and sometimes both. Love the card - so pretty!

Janna said...

Michelle this is just beautiful!!! I love all the glitter and the gorgeous papers and I think the quote is fantastic! I tend to give cards just to say hi if the have quotes like this on them, but then again I am horrible about actually giving and/or mailing cards so you probably should go by what i do! LOL!


Barb said...

Thank you for the lovely comments this evening, Michelle... you are so sweet!

I LOVE the sparkly Stickles on the butterfly... and I really like the quote sentiment on the front. It's really nice to have something besides 'just a note' or whatever once in awhile, ya' know?! :)
