Flutter By Wednesday #14

Yeah it's flutter by time and this is the first week that we can use fairies or butterflies!! Yipppeee!!! I have quite a few fairies that have never been inked so I was so excited to make my card this week with a *new* stamp :0) Plus it was an "open" week which means ANYTHING goes!

This week the guest designer is Lynn Put from The Queen's Scene She's one talented lady so be sure to check out her creation. You can find it as well as Cassie's, who is the featured team member, on Danni's blog. Danni has set up Mr. Linky on her blog - so if you decide to play along, be sure to add it there so we can all see it!

Ok, on to my card. I realized after I had finished it that I made another card with similar color schemes. I'm really enjoying purple, green, pink, blue colors right now! I think it has to do with wanting Spring and warmth to be here! So without further ado here is my card:

Isn't she pretty? The image is a Faerie Song Art Stamp, Lost in Thought, from Susana's Custom Art & Card Design store. She has a whole collection of different Fairies, most of which I got for Christmas and haven't used yet - I know shame, shame! Here is a close up of her:

see her wings? I finally was able to capture the shimmer and shine! WhooHoo! I used glitter & shimmerz on her wings. Totally cool and so awesome IRL! I had planned on using a different fairy but I totally ruined her mouth/face and had to start over. That's when I decided to use this image instead. I'm really glad I did!

Thanks for looking!
