FBW #123

We have a special Flutter By Challenge this week - for this week only, you may use any and all winged things!! That's right? Ladybugs, dragonflies, birds...if it's got wings you can use it!!

I still decided to use butterflies this week since I just got this new butterfly die :) I have a lot going on right now and am running short on time so I decided to create a CAS card. You know what - it felt good too. Being able to get a card done quickly AND I like it - totally plus!

I love all the challenges that are out there but find that I don't always get to play. I have a binder where I keep the sketches, color combos, etc. in so that I can refer back to them. For this card I used an old Clean & Simple Sketch #95 and my color combo comes from Color Throwdown (#107). I made my own background paper by using the large flower from the Blossoms & Blessings stamp set from TAC.

I hope you will join in our challenge this week and play along! Be sure to stop by the Flutter By Wednesday blog to link your NEW creation. Sorry about last week and not getting a card finished. Woodware USA was the sponsor and they have some cute stuff! I really wanted to create something but just ran out of time! Be sure to check the blog to see if you won the prize though!!

Thanks for stopping by!
