Flutter By Wednesday #7

WOW, can you believe it's Wednesday already? Time for another Flutter By Card. This week are challenge was to make a card using the colors purple & blue.

and a close up

I used a stamp that Danni had sent me as a thank you for being on the Flutter By Team. I stamped the butterfly on purple cardstock using purple ink. I then used the same ink to stamp the butterfly on the sentiment circle. I just stamped off on scrap paper first so I'd get a lighter image. The sentiment is from a $1 stamp. Notice the punched border on the blue cardstock? That's one of the new Fiskar Border Punches I got last weekend. It's called Apron Lace. I really like it and I love how the ribbon fits right through it.

Well what do you think of my card? Just leave me a comment and let me know! Like what you see? You could always join as a "follower" on the right hand side and you'd constantly have updates from my blog - never miss a post again! How cool is that?

Remember to check out Danni's blog for the guest designer this week as well as the other team members creations. I'm excited to see what everyone did with this color challenge! Why not join in on the fun and make a Flutter By card of your own. If you do, be sure to share it either by leaving a link to your blog or by uploading to an online gallery. If you do upload to an online gallery, like SCS or PCP, be sure to use FBW45.

Thanks for stopping by!
