Create A Scene

That's the challenge this week for Flutter by Wednesday, issued by Heather. Now Heather is really good at creating scenes...me not so much!! I'm really good at imagining more so then executing but after MANY days and painstaking hours (just kidding, Heather) I came up with something. I really have Jen to thank for her card in this post. When I saw how she used the Happy Thoughts set from TAC I knew that I could base my scene around it.

Now you are probably thinking that Abby made this card (ha, ha) but I did it - all by myself :o) As I was making the card I kept thinking about my younger days...when I just created whatever I vision or felt. Sometimes I forget to do that - I get too caught up in things and lose sight of why I do this. This card was FUN to make - I kept smiling the whole time. Honestly, wouldn't you smile?

The butterfly is a 3d sticker from K&Co. The stamp set (happy thoughts) is from TAC. I stamped it with Belle Rose & Chartreuse Palette Pads. I added buttons tied with Scrappers Floss. All cardstock is DCWV - blue is sanded to give the feel of the sky. Orange is inked with Orangerie Palette pad.

I hope you decide to play along with this week's challenge. Remember your creation needs to contain a butterfly or fairy along with a scene. Stop by Danni's blog to leave a link to your creation so we can all check it out. Also, be sure to stop by the other designers blog to see what they have done!

Thanks for stopping by!
