FBW Challenge issued by ME

Happy Wednesday! As you know, Wednesday's mean flutter by time here and this week I was asked to come up with the challenge. I decided to issue the challenge of using buttons & bows (ribbon) on your card along with a butterfly or fairy.


I started off using Jen del Muro's sketch but after I got done I'm not sure you can tell I used it at all! I LOVE how the card turned out though!







I used Mimi SWIC from TAC which is no longer available because now we have More Mimi SWIC which is double sided - yumO! The stamp is from Inkadinkado. I've always wanted it and a couple of weeks ago it was on clearance at my Micheal's so that baby hopped right into my cart!! I paper pieced the butterfly and colored the image with pencils & OMS. I then added some Stickles for that nice blingy look. Here's a close up of the butterfly:

Aren't the colors fun? It's one of my FAVORITE color combos - it makes me so happy!

I hope you decide to play along this week! Remember to share your card by going to Danni's blog and using the Mr. Linky function. Also, be sure to check out all the other team members blogs for their creation - I can't wait to see what they come up with!! The links for each blog is on the right hand side of my blog. When you visit Jodi's blog be sure to wish her a HAPPY BIRTHDAY since it's today!! I hope she has a great one!

Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by!

This is so pretty! I actually thought you had used the April SOTM with the butterfly from "be of good" over the top of it. Then, I saw it was from Michaels. Very cute!
