Flutter By Wednesday #12

Yippee another Flutter By card - that's why you are visiting today, right? We all know that Wednesday's on my blog mean another Flutter By creation! There is lots going on this week so grab a cup a coffee and read on. First off, this week is a special week for Danni as she is celebrating 50 weeks of Flutter By Wednesday's! So guess what?! Yep, she's giving away BLOG CANDY!!! Here is a picture of all the fabulous goodies

Be sure to stop by Danni's blog to read all the details!! While you are there you'll want to check out the guest designer this week. It's Catherine St. Clair from Paper Garden Projects. Plus you'll also see Heather's work since she is the featured member this week. Both are very talented ladies and I can't wait to see what they come up with.

Our challenge this week was to use a wonderful Maria Bell sketch. Have you been to her blog? She does AMAZING work and I just love that she includes so many sketches. Here is the sketch we had to use

And here is my card using it

Whatcha think? Pretty cool, huh? I just love the fun SPRING colors! Here's a close up of the butterfly

I used my Cuttlebug die and embossing folder. I've had it for quite some time and had never used it and I was perfect for what I wanted to achieve! I can thank fellow team member Cassie for encouraging me to use my Cuttlebug more! The DP is retired from TAC and the sentiment is from Heidi Grace. I used DCWV cardstock - love that stuff! It's white core so I can sand it and get a white distressed looked!

Don't forget to check out the other team members blogs to see their creation. The links are in the sidebar. This is Ami & Kimmie's last week as designers so be sure to visit them - they will be missed!

Whew that was a long one. I hope I didn't forget any important information...when in doubt check Danni's blog since she's the Flutter By creator! Have a great Wednesday and thanks for looking!!
