Snowflake Ornament for FBW #135 OPEN Challenge

Hello there! Today is our last challenge for 2010 at Flutter By Wednesday and it's a fun one! This week we'd love for you to create ANYTHING as long as there is a butterfly, fairy or angel on it!!

I found a pack of plastic snowflakes at my local dollar store that I wanted to make into ornaments. I decided to use MERRIEST WISHES by The Angel Company on it - I mean they are the cutest snow angels!!


One of my favorite color combo's for winter is purple, blue and pink.


Gotta have sparkle - the wings have Stickles on them. And although it's hard to tell I used my Stardust Clear Gelly Pen and added a little sparkle to the flowers on the hat and the polka dots on the scarf.

I wasn't sure what I wanted to put on the back. Decided to use a sentiment but could have easily put a special note or a picture of some sort instead.

I stamped snowflakes from ORNAMENTAL SNOWFLAKES in claret Palette pad. The sentiment is from HUNG BY A TREE.

I took this to my FUNShop last night to show the ladies and they LOVED it! I always try and make a special ornament each year and am so pleased with this one! What do you think of it?

As I mentioned before this is our last challenge for 2010. I hope you will play along! FBW will return on January 5th for a special blog hop! I also want to welcome Kristie back to the FBW team and to thank Erin for being a guest designer in December. Oh and we will be looking for a few new team members...details on how you can apply will be on the FBW blog so if you love FAIRIES, BUTTERFLIES AND ANGELS then our team may be for YOU!!

Thanks for stopping by today!
