Flutter By Challenge #99 - Inspiration Photo

Well usually I like to have my post up bright and early but I either have food poisoning or a very bad case of the stomach flu. Either way, it's not a pretty site and I'm feeling awful!! I know so many of us have been sick this winter season and I'm no exception. I hate talking about things like that but I wanted YOU to know why I haven't been responding to emails, commenting on blogs or basically being my chipper self. I'm feeling 50% better than I did yesterday and believe me that is saying something!!

For our challenge this week we are to use the inspiration photo below to create our card. Remember you'll need to make sure there is a fairy, butterfly or angel on the card as well.


Isn't it such a fun photo? I noticed the wings, the glitter and the colors in the photo and decided to incorporate those in my creation.


I used JUST DREAM by The Angel Company for my image and colored her with my pencils and OMS. The colorful paper is some of my favorite from KI Memories. I also am submitting this card for the following challenges:
Paper Sundaes - Sketch
Pixie Dust - Birthday
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE her wings. I coated them with a thick layer of Crystal Stickles and so love the glimmer/shine on them. Here is a close up view


So whatcha think? I can't wait to see how you perceive the photo. You know we've had a TON of participants in our challenges each week which is AWESOME!! Thank you to everyone who plays along. If you aren't playing along, I hope you'll decide to join us this week! Remember just visit the Flutter By Wednesday Blog and link your creation there using Mr. Linky!

I'm sure I've forgotten something - forgive me if I have. I know our wonderful DT will have some amazing creations so be sure to visit their blogs as well. Their links are on my sidebar. Thanks so much for stopping by!
