Flutter By Challenge

Good Morning - today's challenge was a tough one for me. DT member, Ann issued us the challenge to create a card using a butterfly or Fairy using NO PATTERN PAPER!! {insert gasp here} Since I was only going to use cardstock, I decided to use a slightly larger image and really make it stand out.

This image is from The Angel Company's Jeans and Wings stamp set. I have to tell you I really enjoy this set. I just love those large wings! I used my Dove Blender pen and Aquacolor Crayons to color her in. I embossed the green cardstock using my Cuttlebug Embossing Folders. I keep thinking the card is missing something but not sure what it is - any suggestions??? I had to make her wings sparkle so I applied Crystal Stickles to them. Here's another shot to show the shine.

So are you up for the challenge? If so just stop by Danni's blog and leave a link to your creation using Mr. Linky. I'd love to see what you create! Also, be sure to stop by the other team members blogs to see their card - their links are on the right.

Thank you for stopping by! I'm hoping to get around to some blogs today - I'm in need of some serious inspiration! Have a great day!

I'm a demonstrator for The Angel Company. If you'd like to purchase this stamp set or have any questions, please contact me!
